IthaID: 76

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: CD 16 GGC>GGT [Gly>Gly] HGVS Name: HBB:c.51C>T
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: β 16 Gly>Gly

Also known as:

Comments: This mutation creates a donor site (GT dinucleotides) with similar consensus sequences in the Hb E mutation [codon 26 (G>A)], which activates the existing cryptic site in exon 1.
