Comments: Found as a compound heterozygote with p.A298P in a Thai patient with severe, transfusion-dependent hemolytic anemia characterized by abnormally low levels of the red cell enzyme pyruvate kinase, a known cause of chronic nonspherocytic hemolytic anemias (CNSHA). Persistent expression of fetal haemoglobin (Hb F) and expression of large quantities of embryonic globins in post-natal life. The change is predicted to alter the binding of transcription factors P53, Pax5 and ETF [PMID: 24443441]. Found as a compound heterozygote with p.Q217X in Thai patients homozygous or heterozygous for Hb E. Patients showed high levels of Hb F and lower MCV and MCH values compared to healthy controls [PMID: 27282573].
