Summaries for ESPN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ESPN Gene

  • This gene encodes a multifunctional actin-bundling protein. It plays a major role in regulating the organization, dimensions, dynamics, and signaling capacities of the actin filament-rich, microvillus-type specializations that mediate sensory transduction in various mechanosensory and chemosensory cells. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal recessive neurosensory deafness, and autosomal dominant sensorineural deafness without vestibular involvement. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]

  • Deafness, autosomal recessive, 36, with or without vestibular involvement (DFNB36) [MIM:609006]: 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. DFNB36 is characterized by prelingual, profound hearing loss, and vestibular areflexia in some patients. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15286153, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15930085}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
