IthaID: 179

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation
Common Name: CD 74/75 (-C) HGVS Name: HBB:c.225delC or HBB:c.226delC
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: Deletion of a C between codons 74 and 75 (GGC|CTG), creating a change in the reading frame that results in a premature termination of translation because of a stop codon at codon 88 (TGA).
