IthaID: 2480

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: Pathogenic / Likely Pathogenic
Common Name: CD 129 CTG>-TG HGVS Name: HBA2:c.388delC
Hb Name: Hb Hamilton Hill Protein Info: α2 129 (-C); modified C-terminal sequence

Also known as:

Comments: As a result of this base deletion, a frameshift in the open reading frame generates a premature termination codon at codon 132 of exon 3 resulting in the formation of a truncated α-globin chain. This deletion affects α-globin gene expression at both transcriptional and translation levels.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
