Summaries for USH1C Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for USH1C Gene

  • This gene encodes a scaffold protein that functions in the assembly of Usher protein complexes. The protein contains PDZ domains, a coiled-coil region with a bipartite nuclear localization signal and a PEST degradation sequence. Defects in this gene are the cause of Usher syndrome type 1C and non-syndromic sensorineural deafness autosomal recessive type 18. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for USH1C Gene

USH1C (USH1 Protein Network Component Harmonin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with USH1C include usher syndrome, type 1c and deafness, autosomal recessive 18a. GO annotations related to this gene include actin filament binding and myosin tail binding. An important paralog of this gene is DFNB31.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for USH1C Gene

  • Anchoring/scaffolding protein that is a part of the functional network formed by USH1C, USH1G, CDH23 and MYO7A that mediates mechanotransduction in cochlear hair cells. Required for normal development and maintenance of cochlear hair cell bundles (By similarity). As part of the intermicrovillar adhesion complex/IMAC plays a role in brush border differentiation, controlling microvilli organization and length. Probably plays a central regulatory role in the assembly of the complex, recruiting CDHR2, CDHR5 and MYO7B to the microvilli tips (PubMed:24725409, PubMed:26812018).

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:12107438}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Usher syndrome 1C (USH1C) [MIM:276904]: 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). USH1 is characterized by profound congenital sensorineural deafness, absent vestibular function and prepubertal onset of progressive retinitis pigmentosa leading to blindness. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10973247}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
