IthaID: 3092

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Disease modifying mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: -148 G>A HGVS Name: NG_013087.1:g.4916G>A

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: SNP found in an adult female of Serbian origin with high levels of HbF. The mutation was observed in normal Thai individuals with HbF <1% (n=100), but was absent in normal subjects of Greek origin (n=100). The mutation resides in the Sp1 binding site and alters Sp1 binding to KLF1 promoter, leading to a decreased gene transcription. It is considered to be extremely rare in the general population.
