IthaID: 2085

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Disease modifying mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: CD 175/176 (+7bp): (+CGGCGCC) HGVS Name: NG_013087.1:g.6493_6499dupCGGCGCC

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as: c.519_525dupCGGCGCC, p.Gly176Argfs*179

Comments: Protein change: G176Rfs. Compound heterozygote with p.R301H and p.A298P. Abnormally low levels of the red cell enzyme pyruvate kinase, a known cause of CNSHA. Severe, transfusion dependent hemolytic anemia. Persistent expression of fetal hemoglobin and expression of large quantities of embryonic globins in post-natal life. Associated with increased production of HbF and with borderline HbA2. Co-segregated with β-thalassaemia trait in a family from China, while co-inheritance with β0-thalassaemia resulted in a markedly reduced β-globin expression and thus Hb A levels in utero.
