IthaID: 3446

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Neutral polymorphism Pathogenicity: Benign / Likely Benign
Common Name: IVS II-579 G>T HGVS Name: HBB:c.316-272G>T

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: This mutation is an innocuous SNP associated with a well-characterised cryptic splice acceptor site in HBB. The cryptic splice acceptor is activated by mutation IthaID 214, leading to aberrant splicing, inclusion of a pseudo-exon in the HBB mRNA and beta-thalassaemia. Mutation IthaID 214 retains residual normal splicing activity, and in presence of the causative mutation this SNP may thus conceivably increase normal splicing and ameliorate the associated phenotype.
