IthaID: 2959

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: Pathogenic / Likely Pathogenic
Common Name: CD 52 GAT>G-T HGVS Name: HBB:c.158delA
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: β 52 (-A); modified C-terminal sequence: (52)Val-Leu-Leu-Trp-Ala-Thr-Leu-Arg-(60)COOH

Also known as:

Comments: The deletion of A from codon 52 results in a frameshift with a nonsense codon at codon 60 (TGA) and premature termination of translation.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
