IthaID: 1044

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: Pathogenic / Likely Pathogenic
Common Name: CD 74-76 (-GCCTGG) HGVS Name: HBB:c.224_229delGCCTGG
Hb Name: Hb Saint-Antoine Protein Info: β 74(E18) - 75(E19) Gly-Leu->0

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: The deleted segment Gly-Leu β 74–75 (E 18–19) is the end of helix E and close to a loose zone. Although it is in the vicinity of one of the 2,3-diphosphoglycerate binding sites, it has apparently only minor consequences for the functional properties of the molecule. Reported in literature as HBB:c.223_228delGGCCTG, which does not follow the HGVS Sequence Variant Nomeclature recommendations.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
