Deafness, autosomal recessive 59

DFNB59, Pejvakin, PJVK
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the gasdermin family, a family which is found only in vertebrates. The encoded protein is required for the proper function of auditory pathway neurons. Defects in this gene are a cause of non-syndromic sensorineural deafness autosomal recessive type 59 (DFNB59). [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008] (from NCBI)

Peroxisomes Get Loud: A Redox Antidote to Hearing Loss.
Hetz et al., 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.
