IthaID: 1100

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: Pathogenic / Likely Pathogenic
Common Name: CD 93-97 (-15 bp) HGVS Name: HBB:c.280_294delTGTGACAAGCTGCAC
Hb Name: Hb Gun Hill | Hb GH Protein Info: β 91(F7) - 95(FG2) Leu-His-Cys-Asp-Lys->0

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: Found in a heterozygous state in two members of a family with German and English ancestry, and presenting with mild compensated haemolysis. Found as a heterozygote in an assymptomatic black female living in Alabama; her parents and siblings did not carry the variant. The deleted residues occur in a region involved in heme-globin binding. The β-chains of Hb Gun Hill lack heme groups. Reported in literature as HBB:c.274_288del (α2β2 codons 91-95 deleted), which does not follow the HGVS Sequence Variant Nomeclature recommendations.
