Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: Caucasian HPFH HGVS Name: NC_000011.10:g.5201455_5229279del;5223936_5223960ins25
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Also known as: 27825 bp deletion

Comments: The deletion was reported in six heterozygotes patients of Caucasian origin presented with normal hematologic indices with elevated HbF (>20%). Is a 27825 bp deletion with a 25 bp insertion whose breakpoints are very similar to the SEA HPFH deletion breakpoints. The 5’ breakpoint is localised, at position 5201455 and the 3’ breakpoint is localized at position 5229279, while the insertion 5’ and 3’ breakpoints are localised at the 5223936 and 5223960 position respectively (coordinates: GRCh38.p13, NC_000011.10).
