IthaID: 2149

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: N/A HGVS Name: NG_000007.3:g.42946_70654del
Hb Name: Hb Ulsan Protein Info: Gγ-β hybrid (Gγ through 13; β from 21)

Also known as: Hb Gγ-β Ulsan

Comments: γβ hybrid. Crossover between codon 13 (Gγ) and codon 19 (β). The hybrid globin is identical to the normal β-globin protein in size and in sequence except for the eight N-terminal amino acid substitutions introduced from the Gγ-globin component.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
