In 4 affected members of a family (family FA) with Duane retraction syndrome and hearing loss (DURS3; 617041), Park et al. (2016) identified heterozygosity for a 1-bp deletion (c.803delA, NM_005461.4) within the LZ of the MAFB gene, causing a frameshift predicted to result in premature termination codon (Asn268MetfsTer125), with retention of the EHR and BR domains in the mutant protein. Functional analysis by luciferase assay in transfected HEK293T cells showed no activity with the mutant protein alone, and reduced transcriptional activity of wildtype MAFB when coexpressed with the mutant, consistent with a dominant-negative mechanism. Affected members of this family exhibited phenotypic variability, having either type 1 or type 3 DURS, which was unilateral and right-sided in the mother and 2 affected sons, and bilateral in the affected granddaughter. The mother and 1 son also had right-sided deafness, whereas the granddaughter had bilateral deafness; her affected father did not report deafness, but had not undergone formal hearing testing.
