This gene is one of 60 loci associated with autosomal-recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment. This gene encodes a protein which contains GRX-like domains; these domains play a role in the S-glutathionylation of proteins and may be involved in actin organization in hair cells.

GeneCards Summary for GRXCR1 Gene
GRXCR1 (Glutaredoxin, Cysteine Rich 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GRXCR1 include deafness, autosomal recessive 25 and autosomal recessive non-syndromic sensorineural deafness type dfnb. GO annotations related to this gene include electron carrier activity and protein disulfide oxidoreductase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GRXCR2.
