Figure 6. Schematic diagram of the phenotype of the Ahl/Ahl gene and wild type PMCA2 gene. In this case PMCA2 maintains a normal calcium gradiant around the stereocilia. However, due to an unknown defect in the otocadherin gene (Ahl) the dimers do not form, form non-functional balland- socket joints or are significantly weaker than normal.
