[Article in German]


By investigation of a German family pedigree with non-syndromic hearing impairment of early onset and autosomal-dominant mode of inheritance, linkage to known DFNA loci was excluded, and the existence of a new locus (DFNA33) was revealed. In a subsequent genomic scan the phenotype was mapped to a 6 cM interval on chromosome 13q34-qter. A maximum two-point lod score of 2.96 was obtained for the marker D13S285 with a maximum lod score in the multipoint analysis of 3.28 at 124.56 cM.
