Abstract:

Deafness is one of the most common genetic disorders affecting 1 in 1000 newborns worldwide, while in Pakistan, its prevalence is 1.6/per1000.The present study was conducted to map reported autosomal recessive deafness locus DFNB4/PDS in highly consanguineous families in Punjab. For this purpose families with deafness were identified . Blood samples of these families were studied for linkage analysis of common reported deafness locus DFNB4/PDS. Genomic DNA was isolated from the blood samples of these families. Linkage analysis was then performed by amplifying microsatellite markers through PCR, Genotyping was done by ABI PRISM® 3730 Genetic Analyzer. The Deaf Family was found linked to microsatellite markers of DFNB4/PDS. Linkages analysis showed that all three affected were homozygous for three STR markers for DFNB4/PDS while individuals V: 3 was heterozygous i.e., is carrier for DFNB4. Therefore individuals V: 3 were phenotypically normal but genotypically he is carrier. As the ages of that affected individuals’ ranges from three years to seven years they might develop goiter at a later age. Therefore at present this family is linked to an overlapping nonsyndromic/ syndromic locus DFNB4/PDS.
