26544938 Study describes a genetic form of noise-induced hearing loss , by showing that pejvakin deficiency in mice and DFNB59 patients leads to hypervulnerability to sound, due to a peroxisomal deficiency.
26166082 PCDH15 or DFNB59 variants are associated with poor CI performance, yet children with PCDH15 or DFNB59 variants might show clinical features indistinguishable from those of other typical pediatric cochlear implant recipients.
25631766 p.C312W fsX19 mutation causative of autosomal recessive, non-syndromic, prelingual sensorineural hearing impairment
22617256 Missense mutation in PJVK causes progressive hearing loss.
21935370 OTOF and PJVK gene variants have a role in auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder in Chinese patients
21696384 a c.406C>T (p.R136X) nonsense mutation in the DFNB59 gene hearing loss in an isolated Arab population
20739942 Observational study of genotype prevalence. (HuGE Navigator)
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19160860 failed to detect the presence either of mutations T54I and R183W in the exon 2 and exon 4 or any other deafness-associated mutations in the whole DFNB59 gene in this family
17718865 Mutations in DFNB59 are associated with autosomal recessive non-syndromic hearing loss in about 6.7% of GJB2-negative families.
17373699 data indicate that nonsense mutations in DFNB59 cause nonsyndromic hearing loss, but that mutations in DFNB59 are not a major cause of nonsyndromic hearing impairment in the Turkish and Dutch population
17301963 We have identified a consanguineous family segregating autosomal recessive congenital progressive hearing loss (ARNSHL) and retinal degeneration with central vestibular dysfunction having homozygosity for a DFNB59 mutation.
16804542 DFNB59, a newly identified gene on chromosome 2q31.1-q31.3 mutated in four families segregating autosomal recessive auditory neuropathy
