Summaries for DFNA5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DFNA5 Gene

  • Hearing impairment is a heterogeneous condition with over 40 loci described. The protein encoded by this gene is expressed in fetal cochlea, however, its function is not known. Nonsyndromic hearing impairment is associated with a mutation in this gene. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DFNA5 Gene

DFNA5 (Deafness, Autosomal Dominant 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DFNA5 include deafness, autosomal dominant 5 and dfna 5 nonsyndromic hearing loss and deafness. An important paralog of this gene is DFNB59.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DFNA5 Gene

  • Involved in apoptosis and cell survival. Plays a role in the TP53-regulated cellular response to DNA damage probably by cooperating with TP53.

Disorders for DFNA5 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for DFNA5 Gene (608798)


  • Deafness, autosomal dominant, 5 (DFNA5) [MIM:600994]: A 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. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:9771715}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Is a tumor suppressor gene with an important role in major types of tumors. Could be a valuable molecular marker in cancer.
