Also known as: ~7.6 kb deletion

Comments: Restriction endonuclease analyses revealed two large deletions removing the entire β- and pseudo β-globin genes but leaving intact δ-globin gene. The first deletion (~7.6 Kb) extends from a point 1.5 Κb on the 3’ side of δ-globin gene to about 1.8 Κb on the 3‘side of the β-globin gene. The other deletion (~7.6 Kb) extends from a point 1.5 Κb on the 5’ side of the pseudo β-globin gene to about 4.5 Κb on the 3’ side of the pseudo β-globin gene. The two deletions found in homozygosity in a 2.5-month-old infant presented with β-thalassaemia major.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
