Novel mutations of MYO7A and USH1G in Israeli Arab families with Usher syndrome type 1

Abstract

PURPOSE This study investigated the genetic basis for Usher syndrome type 1 (USH1) in four consanguineous Israeli Arab families. METHODS Haplotype analysis for all known USH1 loci was performed in each family. In families for which haplotype analysis was inconclusive, we performed genome-wide homozygosity mapping using a single nucleotide polymorphism… (More)
