Associated with Deafness autosomal recessive 106 #617637 (AR) in OMIM.

As Zornitza Stark notes there are 2 unrelated families each with a different homozygous frameshift variant in EPS8L2 and a mouse knock out model.

PMID: 26282398 Dahmani  et al 2015 - report 1 consanguineous Algerian family where a homozygous A frame-shift variant (c.1014delC; p.Ser339Alafs*15) was identified in EPS8L2 in 2 affected siblings with progressive hearing loss. The unaffected parents and another sibling were heterozygous for the variant.

PMID: 28281779 Wang et al 2017 - report a homozygous frameshift variant (c.737delC [p. Ala246Alafs*6]) in EPS8L2 in a Pakistani family that cosegregated with deafness.

PMID: 23918390 - Furness et al 2013 - Eps8L2 null-mutant mice exhibit a late-onset, progressive hearing loss that is directly linked to a gradual deterioration in hair bundle morphology.
