Lack of association between Connexin 31 (GJB3) alterations and sensorineural deafness in Austria.

Abstract

Mutations in the gap junction protein beta 3 (GJB3) gene encoding Connexin 31 (Cx31) are known to cause autosomal inherited sensorineural deafness, erythrokeratodermia and neuropathy. The role of Cx31 mutations has not been described in familial cases of non-syndromic hearing impairment (NSHI) in central European populations. To identify mutations in the… (More)
