Conference talk/abstract from ESHG2020 - C06.2 - Whole Exome Sequencing, Molecular Assays, Immunohistology and Animal Models associate USP48 to Hereditary Hearing Loss - Bassani et al. Report 1 large Italian family, and 2 unrelated Dutch families with non-syndromic hearing loss and potentially pathogenic missense variants in USP48. A 4th case with unilateral cochlear nerve aplasia and a de novo splice variant in the same gene is reported. A zebrafish knockout for the USP48 paralog showed delayed primary motoneurons development and behaviour indicative of vestibular dysfunction and hearing impairment and acoustic startle response assays revealed a reduced auditory response.
