IthaID: 2281

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation
Common Name: CD 83 CTG>CGG [Leu>Arg] HGVS Name: HBA2: c.251T>G
Hb Name: Hb Ahvaz Protein Info: α2 83(F4) Leu > Arg

Also known as:

Comments: Leucine to Arginine amino acid change seems to increase oxygen affinity, heme loss, and instability. Thus, altering the spatial arrangements of the contact points decrease the affinity of the α-globin chain for the β-globin chain.
