Protein which, if defective, causes a partial or total inability to hear. The two principal types of deafness are conductive deafness that results from changes in the middle ear, and nerve or sensorineural deafness that is caused by damages to the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information.
