IthaID: 372

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: Pathogenic / Likely Pathogenic
Common Name: CD 39-41 (-9 bp, + 8 bp) HGVS Name: NG_000006.1:g.34010_34018delinsTACTTCCC
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Also known as:

Comments: A deletion of 9 bp (codons 39–41) is replaced by an eight nucleotide insertion, duplicating the adjacent downstream sequence. It results in a premature stop of α2-globin synthesis at codon 48 (TGA).
