Abstract

Objectives: We investigated the cause of autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss (ARNSHL) that segregated in 2 consanguineous Iranian families. Methods: Otologic and audiometric examinations were performed on affected members of each family. Genome-wide parametric multipoint linkage mapping using a recessive model was performed with Affymetrix 50K GeneChips or short tandem repeat polymorphisms. Direct sequencing was used to confirm the causative mutation in each family. Results: In 2 Iranian families, L-1651 and L-8600606, with ARNSHL that mapped to the DFNB7/11 locus, homozygosity for a reported splice site mutation (c.776+1G>A), and a novel deletion (c.1589-1590delCT; p.S530*) were identified in the TMC1 gene, respectively. Conclusions: Consistent with the previously reported phenotype in DFNB7/11 families, the 2 Iranian families had segregated congenital, profound hearing impairment. However, in family L-1651, one affected family member (IV:3) has milder hearing impairment than expected, suggesting a potential genetic modifier effect. These results indicate that DFNB7/11 is a common form of genetic hearing loss in Iran, because this population is the source of 6 of the 29 TMC1 mutations reported worldwide.
