IthaID: 3073

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: Italian (εγδβ)0 deletion HGVS Name: NC_000011.10:g.[5194397_5357192del;5194356_5194401insAGCTAAAGGTTTTGTAAATGCACCAATCAGCAATCTGTGTCTAACTC]
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Also known as:

Comments: The deletion spans 163 kb and involves the entire β-globin gene cluster. The 5′ breakpoint is within a LINE element of 80 kb 3′ of the ε-globin gene, and the 3′ breakpoint is within a 160-bp palindrome of about 30 kb 5′ of the β-globin gene. The carrier shows a beta-thalassemia phenotype with normal Hb A2 and Hb F level.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
