We report a mutation of V-maf musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene homolog B (MAFB), resulting in MCTO phenotypes.
One half of the mutations are associated with genes that code for crytallins, while a quarter with genes that encoded connexin and remaining to other genes that encrypted chromatin modifying protein-4B, beaded heat shock transcription factor-4, filament structural proteins-2, lens intrinsic membrane protein 2, avian musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma, paired-like homeodomain transcription factor-3, Eph-receptor type-A2 and major intrinsic protein or aquaporin-0 (Hejtmancik, 2008; Huang and He, 2010).

It has seven highly conserved Nrf2-ECH homology domains, Neh1 toNeh7 [19,20].Neh1 domain includes a basic leucine zipper structure, which facilitates dimerization with small musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma (sMaf) protein and binding to ARE [21].
