MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a gap junction protein. The encoded protein, also known as a connexin, plays a role in formation of gap junctions, which provide direct connections between neighboring cells. Mutations in this gene have been reported to be associated with nonsyndromic hearing loss.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Half of homozygotes for a null allele show delayed maturation of hearing thresholds, high-frequency hearing loss, vulnerability to noise damage and demyelination of spiral ganglion neurons. Homozygotes for another null allele show normal sciatic nerve conduction with no auditory or visual deficits. [provided by MGI curators]
