Entrez Gene Summary for PDZD7 Gene

  • This gene encodes a ciliary protein homologous to proteins which are mutated in Usher syndrome patients, and mutations and translocations involving this gene have been associated with two types of Usher syndrome. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]

  • Note=A chromosomal aberration disrupting PDZD7 has been found in patients with non-syndromic sensorineural deafness. Translocation t(10;11),t(10;11). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19028668}.
  • Usher syndrome 2C (USH2C) [MIM:605472]: USH is a genetically heterogeneous condition characterized by the association of retinitis pigmentosa with sensorineural deafness. Age at onset and differences in auditory and vestibular function distinguish Usher syndrome type 1 (USH1), Usher syndrome type 2 (USH2) and Usher syndrome type 3 (USH3). USH2 is characterized by congenital mild hearing impairment with normal vestibular responses. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20440071}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting distinct genetic loci, including the gene represented in this entry. PDZD7 mutations have been found in combination with mutations in USH2A and GPR98 in patients affected by Usher syndrome, suggesting a role as contributor to digenic Usher syndrome or a modifier of retinal disease expression. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20440071}.
