Orphanet: ORPHA94064


Role:  Male infertility segregating with sensorineural deafness.
Comments:  This syndrome is caused by a large contiguous gene deletion at 15q15.3 including four genes (KIAA0377, CKMT1B, STRC and CATSPER2). Identified in 3 French brothers with type I CDA, asthenoteratozoospermia, and nonsyndromic deafness who were homozygous for an approximately 70-kb deletion which removed the entire STRC gene and the last 2 exons (225 bp) of the CATSPER2 gene.
