To date, the Acadian Usher syndrome population numbers about 300 identified individuals.
1992), nearly all individuals possessed the same profile of genomic markers from chromosome 11p15.1-p14, suggesting that a single mutation is responsible for all cases of Acadian Usher syndrome. The closest relationship among parents in this study was third cousins.
Although the regulatory regions of the KCNC1 gene must be analyzed for mutations before unequivocably dispelling the gene's candidacy as USH1C, it is apparent that structural alterations in the KCNC1 protein are not the cause of Type IC Usher syndrome.
Such an opportunity became available in 1995 with the discovery that a defective myosin VIIa gene caused the non-Acadian Type IB Usher syndrome (Weil et al.
Difference in the nucleotide sequence obtained from these two groups suggests a mutation and therefore the likely cause of Type IC Usher syndrome.
Acadian (Type IC) Usher syndrome occurs in a small subpopulation of Acadian descendants deriving from a three-parish region in southwestern Louisiana.
