No mutations in connexin genes GJB2, GJB6 or GJA1 among Cameroonians and Xhosa South Africans
6] Could other potential candidate genes, GJB6 (connexin 30) and GJA1 (connexin 43), lead to non-syndromic deafness in Africans?
We performed a series of molecular investigations and reviewed the literature with the aim of validating the clinical utility of testing for GJB2, GJB6 and GJA1 in the African context.
All the coding regions of GJB2, GJB6 and GJA1 were amplified and detection of del(GJB6-D13S1830) was also investigated.
In the GJB6 gene, none of the patients had the GJB6-D13S1830 deletion.
