Disease relevance of USH2B


High impact information on USH2B

  • This maps the gene underlying USH2B to a chromosomal region which overlaps the interval defined for the non-syndromic sensorineural recessive deafness DFNB6, raising the possibility that a single gene underlies both defects [1].

Other interactions of USH2B

  • However, the audiometric features in the patients affected by USH2B and DFNB6 are very different [1].
