FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Mutations in this gene are associated with Pendred syndrome, the most common form of syndromic deafness, an autosomal-recessive disease. It is highly homologous to the SLC26A3 gene; they have similar genomic structures and this gene is located 3' of the SLC26A3 gene. The encoded protein has homology to sulfate transporters.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants are completely deaf with vestibular dysfunction. Mutants show endolymphatic dilatation, degeneration of sensory cells and malformations of otoconia and otoconial membranes. They display unsteady gait and circling and head bobbing. [provided by MGI curators]
