Involvement in diseasei

Deafness, autosomal recessive, 31 (DFNB31)3 Publications
The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Disease descriptionA form of non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information.
See also OMIM:607084
Usher syndrome 2D (USH2D)1 Publication
The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Disease descriptionUSH is a genetically heterogeneous condition characterized by the association of retinitis pigmentosa and sensorineural deafness. Age at onset and differences in auditory and vestibular function distinguish Usher syndrome type 1 (USH1), Usher syndrome type 2 (USH2) and Usher syndrome type 3 (USH3). USH2 is characterized by congenital mild hearing impairment with normal vestibular responses.
