Strategy for the customized mass screening of genetic sensorineural hearing loss in koreans.
Seoul, South Korea. In Korean J Audiol, Sep 2014
The other causative genes were MRNR1, WFS1, COCH, TECTA, MYO6, COL11A2, EYA4, GJB3, OTOF, STRC, MYO3A, and GJB2.
[Hearing loss associated with GJB2 gene mutation].
In Lin Chuang Er Bi Yan Hou Ke Za Zhi, 2013
The mutation of GJB2 (gap junction protein, beta 2) gene accounts for 80% of NSHL and more than 50% of children NSHL, playing the most important role in deafness genes.
Genetic Assay for Newborn Auditory Screening.
In Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg, 2012
The 2 most commonly identified genetic mutations identified were the SLC26A4 gene, known to encode the pendrin protein, followed by the GJB2 gene, responsible for gap-junction protein Connexin 26.
