Summaries for STRC Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for STRC Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that is associated with the hair bundle of the sensory hair cells in the inner ear. The hair bundle is composed of stiff microvilli called stereocilia and is involved with mechanoreception of sound waves. This gene is part of a tandem duplication on chromosome 15; the second copy is a pseudogene. Mutations in this gene cause autosomal recessive non-syndromic deafness. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for STRC Gene

STRC (Stereocilin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with STRC include Deafness, Autosomal Recessive 16 and Deafness, Autosomal Dominant 16. An important paralog of this gene is OTOA.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for STRC Gene

  • Essential to the formation of horizontal top connectors between outer hair cell stereocilia.

  • Deafness, autosomal recessive, 16 (DFNB16) [MIM:603720]: 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:11687802}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Deafness-infertility syndrome (DIS) [MIM:611102]: Characterized by deafness and infertility and is caused by large contiguous gene deletions at 15q15.3 that removes both STRC and CATSPER2 genes. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17098888}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
