IthaID: 2971



Names and Sequences

Functionality: Neutral polymorphism
Common Name: -44 C>A HGVS Name: HBA2:c.-81C>A

Context nucleotide sequence:
AATGAGCGCCGCCCGGCCGGGCGTG [C>A] CCCCGCGCCCCAAGCATAAAC (Strand: +)

Comments: Found as a heterozygote. Point-mutation located at the proximal promoter region affecting the α-inverted repeat protein (α-IRP) recognition site. α-IRP is a transcriptional activator. Functional studies did not show a statistically significant change in the transcriptional activity compared to the wild type. Reported as a polymoprhic variant.
