Peroxisomes Get Loud: A Redox Antidote to Hearing Loss.
Santiago, Chile. In Cell, Dec 2015
Pejvakin (PJVK), a protein originally identified in Persian families with sensorineural hearing loss, regulates peroxisomal dynamics and the antioxidant defense triggered by noise exposure in hair cells and auditory neurons of the inner ear.
Five novel loci for inherited hearing loss mapped by SNP-based homozygosity profiles in Palestinian families.
Palestine, United States. In Eur J Hum Genet, 2010
Novel alleles included missense, nonsense, and splice site mutations of CDH23, MYO7A, MYO15A, OTOF, PJVK, Pendrin/SLC26A4, TECTA, TMHS, and TMPRSS3, and a large genomic deletion of Otoancorin (OTOA).
