Involvement in diseaseDefects in GRHL2 are the cause of deafness autosomal dominant type 28 (DFNA28) [MIM:608641]. DFNA28 is a form of sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information. DFNA28 is characterized by mild to moderate hearing loss across most frequencies that progressed to severe loss in the higher frequencies by the fifth decade. Age at onset varied, with the earliest case documented at 7 years of age.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the grh/CP2 family. Grainyhead subfamily.
