IthaID: 3265

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Disease modifying mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: α-globin cluster triplication HGVS Name: NC_000016.10:g.(53322_113530)_(181203_206337)dup

Also known as:

Comments: Triplication of the entire α-globin gene cluster and the regulatory region (HS-40) of the α-globin gene. Found in combination with heterozygous β-thalassaemia, resulting in a clinical presentation of thalassaemia intermedia. Identified by whole exome sequencing.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
