We report the identification of a novel locus responsible for an autosomal recessive form of hearing loss (DFNB) segregating in a Palestinian consanguineous family from Jordan. The affected individuals suffer from profound prelingual sensorineural hearing impairment. A genetic linkage with polymorphic markers surrounding D9S1776 was detected, thereby identifying a novel deafness locus, DFNB31. This locus could be assigned to a 9q32-34 region of 15 cM between markers D9S289 and D9S1881. The… CONTINUE READING
