IthaID: 3403

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: Pathogenic / Likely Pathogenic
Common Name: CD 39 +A HGVS Name: HBA2:c.118_119insA
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: α2 39(+A); modified C-terminal sequence: (39)Asn-Gln-Asp-Leu-Leu-Pro-Ala-Leu-Arg-Pro- Glu-Pro-Arg-Leu-Cys-Pro-Gly-(56)COOH

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: Insertion of 'A' within codon 39 (AACC) of α2 gene. Frameshift mutation at the beginning of exon 2 which certainly activates the nonsense mediated decay mecanism. No protein expression.
