Reagents, Molecular Assay, Gene Anomaly, Mutation, SLC26A4
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify mutations in the solute carrier family 26, member 4 (SLC26A4) gene, located at chromosome 7q31, which encodes for a transport protein that is a sodium-independent transporter of chloride and iodide and is active in the thyroid, kidney, and inner ear. This inherited genetic mutation has been identified in patients with nonsyndromic deafness.
