1999). In this model, the motor end of the myosin VI molecule would attach to the abundant actin in the cuticular plate, while the tail of the myosin would attach directly or indirectly to the apical membrane, serving to hold down the membrane between adjacent stereocilia. The natural tendency of a lipid-rich cell membrane in an aqueous environment would be to form a sphere with a minimal surface area to minimize surface tension, and any other configuration must be actively maintained. The arrangement of stereocilia, with closely apposed membranes, seems likely to require very active maintenance to avoid the tendency to fusion.

Shaker, a new mutation of the house mouse (Mus musculus).

Fortuitously, as we began to gather clinical data on deafness in Bengkala and to initiate an effort to map the responsible gene, we discovered several consanguineous families living in India with congenital deafness linked to DFNB3. We also found a genetic link to a deaf strain of mice known as shaker-2. 2 Over many generations the mutation causing deafness in Bengkala has been disseminated among many of the villagers. Assortative mating, the preference of deaf individuals for deaf spouses, has also increased the number of deaf individuals in Bengkala.
