Tehrān, Iran. In Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol, 04 Oct 2014
Non-syndromic deafness is highly heterogeneous and mutations in the GJB2 are responsible for almost 30-50% in northwest to as low as 0-5% in south and southeast of the Middle East, it remain as major gene in ARNSHL in Middle East.

In Lin Chuang Er Bi Yan Hou Ke Za Zhi, Oct 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.
