IthaID: 1505

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: Vietnamese, SE Asian HGVS Name: NC_000011.10:g.5201647_5229059del
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Also known as: HPFH-7, SEA-HPFH

Comments: This deletion involves the entire β-globin gene and a 26 kb 3’ region to the β-globin gene with a total deletion length of 27 kb or 30 kb (conflicting reports). The 5′ breakpoint is located ~3.5 kb downstream of the δ-globin gene (or between nucleotides 986 and 987 upstream of the β-globin gene). The 3' breakpoint is located ~2.3 kb downstream from the 3′ HS-1 site of the β-globin gene. According to the distance from the 3’ breakpoint to the 3’ HS1 site, which is located approximately 20 kb 3’ of the β-globin gene, the total length of this deletion should be about 27 kb. The 3' breakpoint is also found ~8 kb 3' to the breakpoint found in HPFH-3 and close to that of the German and Belgian Gγ(Aγδβ)-thalassemia types. The deletion is the result of a non-homologous recombination event.
