We want to pick up homologous genes for the DFNA5 gene, responsible for hereditary hearing impairment (Van Laer et al, Nature Genet 20: 194-197, 1998). It is an orphan gene and the function is currently unknown. We are looking for cDNA libraries from several different mammalian species (not mouse or human). This gene is ubiquitously expressed, so the tissue is not very important.

Dear Colleagues,
In my country(Turkey), Van cats are hereditary hearing impairment , albino and iris heterokromia. These are very rare and important for my people, so I can't send you tissue, but blood samples. If you interest write me.
