    USH1C/Harmonin Summary & Protein Information

    USH1C/Harmonin Background

    Gene Summary: USH1C gene encodes a scaffold protein that functions in the assembly of Usher protein complexes. The protein contains PDZ domains, a coiled-coil region with a bipartite nuclear localization signal and a PEST degradation sequence. Defects in this gene are the cause of Usher syndrome type 1C and non-syndromic sensorineural deafness autosomal recessive type 18. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for USH1C gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
    General information above from NCBI
    Subunit structure: Interacts with F-actin. Interacts with HARP (By similarity). Interacts with USH1G/SANS, USH2A and SLC4A7. Interacts (via the first PDZ domain) with the C-terminus of USHBP1. Interacts (via N-terminus and second PDZ domain) with CDH23. Part of a complex composed of USH1C, USH1G and MYO7A.
    Domain: The PDZ domain 1 mediates interactions with USH1G/SANS and SLC4A7.
    The N-terminal region constitutes an independently folded domain that has structural similarity with the CCM2 C-terminus, despite very low sequence similarity.
    Subcellular location: Cytoplasm, cytosol. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note=Colocalizes with F-actin (By similarity). Detected at the tip of cochlear hair cell stereocilia.
    Tissue specificity: Expressed in small intestine, colon, kidney, eye and weakly in pancreas. Expressed also in vestibule of the inner ear.
    Involvement in disease: Usher syndrome 1C (USH1C) [MIM:276904]: USH is a genetically heterogeneous condition characterized by the association of retinitis pigmentosa with 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). USH1 is characterized by profound congenital sensorineural deafness, absent vestibular function and prepubertal onset of progressive retinitis pigmentosa leading to blindness. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
    Deafness, autosomal recessive, 18A (DFNB18A) [MIM:602092]: A form of non-syndromic 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. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
    Sequence similarity: Contains 3 PDZ (DHR) domains.
    General information above from UniProt

    Harmonin, also known as Antigen NY-CO-38 / NY-CO-37, Autoimmune enteropathy-related antigen AIE-75, Protein PDZ-73, Renal carcinoma antigen NY-REN-3, Usher syndrome type-1C protein and USH1C, is a protein which is expressed in small intestine, colon, kidney, eye and weakly in pancreas. USH1C is expressed also in vestibule of the inner ear. USH1C contains 3 PDZ (DHR) domains. USH1C may be involved in protein-protein interaction. Defects in USH1C are the cause of Usher syndrome type 1C (USH1C), also known as Usher syndrome type I Acadian variety. 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). Defects in USH1C are also the cause of deafness autosomal recessive type 18 (DFNB18) which 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.
