Summaries for TMIE Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TMIE Gene

  • This gene encodes a transmembrane inner ear protein. Studies in mouse suggest that this gene is required for normal postnatal maturation of sensory hair cells in the cochlea, including correct development of stereocilia bundles. This gene is one of multiple genes responsible for recessive non-syndromic deafness (DFNB), also known as autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss (ARNSHL), the most common form of congenitally acquired inherited hearing impairment. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for TMIE Gene

TMIE (Transmembrane Inner Ear) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TMIE include Deafness, Autosomal Recessive 6 and Autosomal Recessive Non-Syndromic Sensorineural Deafness Type Dfnb.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TMIE Gene

  • Unknown. The protein may play some role in a cellular membrane location. May reside within an internal membrane compartment and function in pathways such as those involved in protein and/or vesicle trafficking. Alternatively, the mature protein may be localized in the plasma membrane and serve as a site of interaction for other molecules through its highly charged C-terminal domain.

  • Deafness, autosomal recessive, 6 (DFNB6) [MIM:600971]: 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:12145746}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
