Connexins are trans-membrane proteins that have a role in communication and transferring of ions and small signaling molecules between cells.8 This locus is already been reported in Pakistani and Mediterranean families supporting that GJB2 is the main gene for inherited sensorineural deafness.9 More than 90 variants in GJB2 have been reported and meta-analysis in different ethnic group confirmed a strong association of GJB2 mutation with HL in different population.10
Ethnic-specific spectrum of GJB2 and SLC26A4 mutations: Their origin and a literature review.
IL23R was upregulated in all tested patients one hour postephrin-B2 stimulation, and eight genes (IL1A, IL1B, CCL2, CDKN2B, TNFAIP6, HEY1, ITGB8, and GJB2) were upregulated in all patients four hours poststimulation.
SNPscan method was used to prescreen against the 124 sites in the common deafness genes (i.e., GJB2,12S rRNA, and SLC26A4) as previously described [7].
In order to exclude mutations of GJB2, SLC26A4, and MtDNA12SrRNA genes, a "SNPscan assay" was employed.
It has also been reported that some genes, such as GJB2, may have a different pattern of inheritance according to the specific mutation: a particular mutation of GJB2 is linked to an autosomal dominant form of hearing impairment (DFNA3A) [34].
In all affected individuals, primarily the encoding and non-encoding exons of the GJB2 (NM_004004) gene were reproduced using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with appropriate primers under appropriate conditions and examined using sequence analysis (CEQ8800, Beckman Coulter, ABD).
In conclusion, this patient represents a classic case of the rare entity, PEODDN, and draws attention to recent discoveries that a genetic mutation in GJB2 is causative.
Identification of two disease-causing genes TJP2 and GJB2 in a Chinese family with unconditional autosomal dominant nonsyndromic hereditary hearing impairment.
For this study, the researchers targeted the most common form of congenital deafness in children, which is caused by the genetic mutation of GJB2 and GJB6.
Reported mutations occur more frequently in GJB2 gene, which encodes the gap junction protein connexin 26 (beta 2, GJB2) [5].
