USH2A: Involved in hearing and vision. Defects in USH2A are the cause of Usher syndrome type 2A (USH2A). USH is a genetically heterogeneous condition characterized by the association of retinitis pigmentosa and sensorineural deafness. Age at onset and differences in auditory and vestibular
function distinguish Usher syndrome type 1 (USH1), Usher syndrome type 2 (USH2) and Usher syndrome type 3 (USH3). USH2 is characterized by congenital mild hearing impairment with normal vestibular responses. Defects in USH2A are the cause of retinitis pigmentosa type 39 (RP39). RP leads to degeneration of retinal photoreceptor cells. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well. RP39 inheritance is autosomal recessive. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
