We demonstrate through homozygosity mapping and whole exome seuquencing that autosomal recessive osteogensis imperfecta (OI) type IV is associated with a homozygous deletion mutation of exon 4 of TMEM38B. TMEM38B encodes TRIC-B, a ubiquitous component of TRIC, a monovalent cation-specific channel involved in Ca2+ release from intracellular stores that has been shown to act in cell differentiation.
