Disease relevance of DFNB32


High impact information on DFNB32

  • The interval of DFNB32 locus overlap with DFNA37 locus and the Marshall and Stickler syndromes locus [1].
  • Following a genome wide screening, a linkage was detected only with locus D1S206 on chromosome 1, thereby defining a novel deafness locus, DFNB32 [1].
  • The genes corresponding to the ESTs found in the DFNB32 interval are being screened for deafness-causing mutations [1].
  • Towards the identification of the DFNB32 gene, a search on the Human Cochlear cDNA Library and EST Database was done [1].
