Assessment of pathogenicity of novel variants is a primary task for molecular diagnostics of hereditary diseases. Mutations in gene GJB2 encoding transmembrane protein Cx26 are the common cause for hearing loss worldwide. We present a complex assessment of pathogenicity of novel non-synonymous variant c.516G>C (p.Trp172Cys) in GJB2 found with high frequency in deaf patients belonging to indigenous peoples of Southern Siberia (Tuvinians and Altaians).
