IthaID: 2159

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: (εγδβ)0 with α triplication HGVS Name: N/A
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Also known as:

Comments: The (εγδβ)°-thalassemia deletion is associated with an alpha globin gene triplication. This combination leads to a fetal thalassemic syndrome responsible for hydrops foetalis syndrome requiring multiple intra uterine RBC transfusions.
