Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: Indian (Aγδβ)0 (inv) HGVS Name: N/A
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Also known as: Asian-Indian Inv/Del Gγ(Aγδβ)0

Comments: The Gγ(Aγδβ)0-thalassaemia is characterized by abrogated expression from Aγ-, δ- and β-globin genes. It is caused by a major rearrangement that includes an inversion of the sequence between the 3' end of the Aγ gene and the IVS II region of the β-globin gene, followed by two deletions (total 8.5 kb) of the flanking DNA sequence (~1 kb from the Aγ gene and ~7.5 kb from between δ- and β-globin genes). Gene mapping with various enzymes and probes. The breakpoint of the smaller 5' side deletion occurs between the PstI/ XbaI and 0.6 kb EcoRI sites, near the 3' end of the Aγ gene. The inversion breakpoints are between the 0.6 kb EcoRI site and between the HindIII/EcoRI sites in the 3' Aγ gene. The deletion in the downstream region extends from a region between the HindIII/EcoRI sites to exon 3 of the β-globin gene.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
