Likewise, their cochlear hair cell phenotype is abnormal; their hair cells appear normal after birth but become disorganized and fuse to form massive stereocilia by the 20th day after birth.

2003b). 1) mutations render the phenotype into NSHL (DFNB23) only. Clues regarding the function of protocadherin 15 in the hearing process emerged from the study of wild type and Ames waltzer mice. Normal expression of protocadherin 15 was seen at embryonic day 16, overlapping the period during which stereocilia begin their formation. On the other hand, the stereocilia of Ames waltzer were remarkably disoriented, and displayed degeneration. Clearly, this indicated that protocadherin 15 plays a vital role in the formation and maintenance of the stereocilia.
