IthaID: 3249

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation
Common Name: CD 135 GCT>GC- HGVS Name: HBB:c.408delT
Hb Name: Hb Urumqi Protein Info: N/A

Context nucleotide sequence:

Comments: Discovered by capture-based NGS of 22260 samples (South China origin) as a de novo mutation with an HbF-related SNP (rs368698783). The deletion results in a frameshift in the β-globin sequence, thus extending the read to the next TAA stop signal located at position 158. This leads to a completely different C-terminal amino acid sequence and presumed synthesis of an abnormal β-globin chain that is 157 residues long instead of the normal 147.
