Deafness gene mutations in newborns in Beijing.
Beijing, China. In Acta Otolaryngol, Feb 2016
Study sample This study tested 37 573 newborns within 3 days after birth, including nine sites in four genes: GJB2 (35 del G, 176 del 16, 235 del C, 299 del AT), SLC26A4 (IVS7-2 A > G, 2168 A > G), MTRNR1 (1555 A > G, 1494 C > T), and GJB3 (538 C > T).

Jinan, China. In Zhonghua Er Bi Yan Hou Tou Jing Wai Ke Za Zhi, May 2015
Nine mutations [GJB2 (235delC, 35delG, 299delAT, 176del16), SLC26A4 (IVS7-2A>G,2168 A>G), GJB3 (538 C>T), 12SrRNA (1555 A>G, 1494C>T)] of 4 frequent genes associated with Chinese hearing loss were determined by gene chip in these dried blood samples.

In Vestn Otorinolaringol, 2005
Definite association of hereditary deafness and mutational alterations in genes of connexins 26, 30 and 31 shows high informative value of molecular-genetic methods which diagnose hereditary deafness, carriage of mutations in GJB2, GJB3 and GJB6 genes, provide definite probability of the disease in medico-genetic consulting.
Nuclear and mitochondrial genes mutated in nonsyndromic impaired hearing.
Vienna, Austria. In Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol, 2005
Mutations in a single gene may not only cause autosomal dominant, nonsyndromic HIH, but also autosomal recessive, nonsyndromic HIH (GJB2, GJB6, MYO6, MYO7A, TECTA, TMC1), and even syndromic HIH (CDH23, COL11A2, DPP1, DSPP, GJB2, GJB3, GJB6, MYO7A, MYH9, PCDH15, POU3F4, SLC26A4, USH1C, WFS1).
