The expression of Ush1b (show MYO7A Antibodies) and Ush1c (show USH1C Antibodies) was up-regulated when Ush2a was null. We also found that disruption of fibronectin (show FN1 Antibodies) assembly at the retinal basement membrane weakened cell adhesion in ush2a(-/-) mutants.
The visual outcome for non-syndromic RP or USH2 patients with USH2A mutations is consistent with that for RP patients with EYS (show EYS Antibodies) mutations.
Family study implicating mutations in GJB2 (show GJB2 Antibodies) and USH2A in Usher's syndrome with congenital hearing loss
Multiple genes contributing to the retinal dystrophy (show MERTK Antibodies) genotypes within a family were discovered using retinal gene-targeted next-generation sequencing. Families with noted examples of phenotypic variation or apparent non-penetrant individuals may offer a clue to suspect complex inheritance.
two truncating mutations combine in USH2A to cause more severe and progressive hearing impairment in Usher syndrome type IIa
The current study confirmed a more severe progression of the retinal disease in USH1 patients rather than in USH2 patients.
7 patients clinically classified as having USH2, genetic tests confirmed the USH2 diagnosis in 5 cases. Of these, 4 patients showed mutations in the USH2A gene and 1 patient in the ADGRV1 gene. The mutation of the ADGRV1/GPR98 gene has an extremely rare incidence and is associated with a diagnosis of USH type 2C.
In summary, our studies provide novel insight into the functional relationship between USH1 and USH2 proteins in the cochlea and the retina as well as the disease mechanisms underlying USH1 and USH2.
We identified four novel CNVs in three different genes (one duplication in USH2A gene, two duplications in CEP290 (show CEP290 Antibodies) gene, and one duplication in RIMS2 (show RIMS2 Antibodies) gene) in total four families, at a detection rate of 8% (4/50).
Most patients with USH2A-associated RP have severe visual impairment by age 50. However, those with Usher syndrome type IIa have an earlier decline of visual function and a higher cumulative risk of visual impairment than those without nonsyndromic RP.
Protein-protein interaction assays and co-expression of complex partners reveal that pathogenic mutations in USH1G (show USH1G Antibodies) severely affect formation of the SANS (show USH1G Antibodies)/ush2a/whirlin (show DFNB31 Antibodies) complex. Translational read-through drug treatment, targeting the c.728C > A (p.S243X) nonsense mutation, restored SANS (show USH1G Antibodies) scaffold function. We conclude that USH1 and USH2 proteins function together in higher order protein complexes.
Conservation of usherin is seen at the nucleotide and amino acid level when comparing the mouse and human gene sequences.
Binding to fibronectin (show FN1 Antibodies) occurs at the LE domain of usherin.
In mouse inner ears usherin is present at the base of the differentiating stereocilia, which make up the mechanosensitive hair bundles receptive to sound
Whrn connects to the Usher protein network in the cochlea and retina by direct association with USH2A and VLGR1.
usherin in photoreceptors is tethered via its C terminus to the plasma membrane and its large extracellular domain projects into the periciliary matrix, where they may interact with the connecting cilium to fulfill important structural or signaling roles
This gene encodes a protein that contains laminin EGF motifs, a pentaxin domain, and many fibronectin type III motifs. The protein is found in the basement membrane, and may be important in development and homeostasis of the inner ear and retina. Mutations within this gene have been associated with Usher syndrome type IIa and retinitis pigmentosa. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
