27057829 The detection rate of the single GJB2 mutation among the 160 SNHL subjects in the present study (6.25%) was higher than 2.58% in normal hearing controls in Korean. The DFNB1 was clearly excluded as a molecular etiology in four (40%) subjects
26977562 GJB2 mutation is associated with hereditary deafness in Yakutiya.
26896187 The results show a very high proportion of GJB2-positive individuals in Lithuanian patients affected with sensorineural hearing loss.
26831144 Connexin26 I30N and D50Y mutations resulted in the retention of Cx26 protein in the Golgi apparatus.
26810281 We have found a 148G-A transition in the GJB2 gene, resulting in an asp50-to-asn (D50N) substitution in a girl with congenital deafness. This finding allowed us to diagnose small a, Cyrillic KID syndrome.
26763442 Connexin26 mutation is responsible for palmoplantar keratoderma and deafness.
26753910 Cx26 structure is nearly identical with and without bound Ca2+. Ca2+ regulates Cx26 via ionic conduction block via an electrostatic barrier rather than steric occlusion of the channel pore.
26749107 although all variants were able to function normally as hetero-oligomeric gap junction channels, six variants (p.E47K, p.E47Q, p.H100L, p.H100Y, p.R127L, and p.M195L) did not function normally as homo-oligomeric GJ channels
26663044 Data suggest that ombined hearing screening and genetic screening of gap junction protein beta 2 (GJB2), mtDNA 12srRNA and solute carrier family 26, member 4 protein SLC26A4 mutations can improve the rate of detection.
26648344 Cx26 overexpression by transfection of Cx26 plasmid DNA enhanced OXA cytotoxicity.
