Splice-site mutations in the TRIC gene underlie autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment in Pakistani families

Abstract

AbstractHereditary hearing impairment (HI) displays extensive genetic heterogeneity. To date, 67 autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment (ARNSHI) loci have been mapped, and 24 genes have been identified. This report describes three large consanguineous ARNSHI Pakistani families, all of which display linkage to marker loci located in the genetic… (More)
