Mutations in the GJA8 gene have been found to cause several types of autosomal dominant cataract, which have been described as congenital, zonular pulverulent, nuclear progressive, nuclear pulverulent, stellate nuclear, nuclear total, total, and posterior subcapsular. Cataract associated with microcornea, sometimes called the cataract-microcornea syndrome, is also caused by mutation in the GJA8 gene.
