The nucleotide numbering of the mouse gene was used for the human DFNA12 and DFNA8 mutations. Because this numbering includes the 266-bp 5´ untranslated region of the gene encoding mouse α-tectorin, the numbering is off by 266 bp. Therefore, 5725C→T should be replaced by 5459C→T, 5738G→A by 5472G→A and 5876A→G by 5610A→G. Because the numbering of amino acids was correct, this does not affect the conclusions drawn.
