Abstract

OBJECTIVES: Hearing impairment is the most common sensorineural disorder and is genetically heterogeneous. Identification of the pathogenic mutations underlying hearing impairment is difficult, since causative mutations in 127 different genes have so far been reported. METHODS: In this study, we performed Next-generation sequencing (NGS) in 2 individuals from a consanguineous family with hearing loss. RESULTS: Three novel mutations in known deafness genes were identified in the family; MYO6-p.R928C and -p.D1223N in heterozygous state and ILDR1-p.Y143C in homozygous state. Sanger sequencing confirmed co-segregation of the three mutations with deafness in the family. The identified mutation in ILDR1 gene is located in the immunoglobulin-type domain of the ILDR1 protein and the detected mutations in MY06 are located in the tail domain of the MYO6 protein. The mutations are predicted to be pathogenic by SIFT, PolyPhen and Mutation Taster. CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that either the homozygous ILDR1-p.Y143C mutation might be the pathogenic variant for ARNSHL or heterozygous MYO6- p.R928C, -p.D1223N might be involved in these patient's disorder due to compound heterozygousity. To our knowledge, this is the first ILDR1 and MYO6 mutations recognized in the southwest Iran. Our data expands the spectrum of mutations in ILDR1 and MYO6 genes.
