Common Name: CD 142 (-CC) HGVS Name: HBB:c.429_430delCC
Hb Name: Hb Uzes Protein Info: β 142 (-CC); modified C-terminal sequence: (142)Ala-Gln-Val-Ser-Leu-Ser-Ser-Leu-Ser-Cys- | Cys-Pro-Ile-Ser-Ile-Lys-Gly-Ser-Phe-Val- | Pro-(163)COOH

Context nucleotide sequence:

Comments: Found as a heterozygote in an elder proband of French Caucasian origin living in Brittany and presenting with normal haematological indices. The deletion generates a frameshift with elongation of the β-globin chain to 162 residues, yet no elongated β-globin chain or more complex species were detected by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. No abnormal β-globin chain was observed in reversed phase HPLC. Also reported as a structural variant found in a hetrozygous state in a French proband, which was observed in reversed phase HPLC. The presence of two Cys residues in the elongated part may cause some polymerisation.
