IthaID: 392

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation
Common Name: IVS II-142 G>A HGVS Name: HBA2:c.301-1G>A
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: Mutation involves the splice acceptor site (AG>AA) and thus affects RNA processing, leading to a complete suppression of the alpha-globin chain production. Patient presents with Hb H disease.
