DFNB89 is a novel autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment (ARNSHI) locus that was mapped to 16q21-q23.2. Linkage to the region was established by carrying out genome-wide linkage scans in two unrelated, consanguineous Pakistani families segregating ARNSHI. The maximum multipoint LOD score is 9.7 for both families and for each family, a significant maximum LOD score of 6.0 and 3.7 were obtained. The 3-unit support interval and the region of homozygosity for the two families extend… 

Identification of autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment genes through the study of consanguineous and non-consanguineous families: past, present, and future.

An overview of the 73 AR NSHI genes, the methods used to identify them, including next-generation sequencing which revolutionized the field, and new technologies that show great promise in advancing ARNSHI discoveries are presented.

Genetics of Nonsyndromic Recessively Inherited Moderate to Severe and Progressive Deafness in Humans

Individuals can have usable hearing if deafness does not impair these frequencies to a profound degree, and those between 41 to 90 dB are defined as moderate, moderate to severe or severe hearing loss (71-90 dB), respectively.

Usher syndrome 1D and nonsyndromic autosomal recessive deafness DFNB12 are caused by allelic mutations of the novel cadherin-like gene CDH23.

Genes causing nonsyndromic autosomal recessive deafness (DFNB12) and deafness associated with retinitis pigmentosa and vestibular dysfunction (USH1D) were previously mapped to overlapping regions of chromosome 10q21-q22, but mutations in a novel cadherin-like gene, CDH23, were found both in families with DFNB12 and in Families with USH1D.

PCDH15 is expressed in the neurosensory epithelium of the eye and ear and mutant alleles are responsible for both USH1F and DFNB23.

It is reported that non-syndromic recessive hearing loss (DFNB23) is caused by missense mutations of PCDH15, and the results further strengthen the importance of protocadherin 15 in the morphogenesis and cohesion of stereocilia bundles and retinal photoreceptor cell maintenance or function.

Human cochlear expressed sequence tags provide insight into cochlear gene expression and identify candidate genes for deafness.

A number of the cochlear ESTs show high homology to non-human genes, suggesting new gene family members or human homologs of animal genes, and the chromosomal map positions are reported, providing positional candidate genes for 18 different non-syndromic hearing disorders.
