Comments: Reported in individuals with neurodevelopmental disorder with persistence of fetal haemoglobin. Functional work using cord blood CD34+ HSPCs showed that this missense variant destabilizes the XL protein isoform via the ZnF0 N-terminal C2HC zinc finger of the BCL11A, and promotes proteasomal degradation of BCL11A.
