IthaID: 2154

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation
Common Name: French deletion/insertion HGVS Name: NG_000007.3:g.[61399_61400insC; 61402_81144del]
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: deletion of 19734 nts from the δ gene to β gene

Also known as: French HPFH deletion

Comments: Found in a heterozygous state in a Caucasian male with a normal haematological phenotype. The deletion spans approximately 19743 bp and removes both the β- and δ-globin genes with insertion of a nt C just before the 5'-deletion breakpoint.
