Also known as:

Comments: The deletion spans approximately 300 kb on the α-globin gene cluster. The 5' breakpoint is located within the C16orf8/RHBDF1 gene, upstream of the distal regulatory elements, and the 3' breakpoint is located within a 136 kb region between the PDIP and AXIN1 genes.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
