Summaries for USH1G Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for USH1G Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that contains three ankyrin domains, a class I PDZ-binding motif and a sterile alpha motif. The encoded protein interacts with harmonin, which is associated with Usher syndrome type 1C. This protein plays a role in the development and maintenance of the auditory and visual systems and functions in the cohesion of hair bundles formed by inner ear sensory cells. Mutations in this gene are associated with Usher syndrome type 1G (USH1G). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2013]

  • Note=The first cases with non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss based on mutations in USH1G. The hearing loss has an onset during early childhood, is progressive, and has a downsloping audiogram configuration. Ophthalmic and vestibular abnormalities are absent. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:25255398}.
  • Usher syndrome 1G (USH1G) [MIM:606943]: 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:12588794, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16283141}.
