IthaID: 2555

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: α12 HGVS Name: N/A
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Also known as: HBA2 gene conversion

Comments: The majority of individuals who were positive for the α12 allele had a reduction in the percentage of HbA2. The α12 allele was found in compound heterozygosity with --SEA [IthaID: 309] and Hb Quong Sze [IthaID: 408].

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
