IthaID: 3269

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: CD 147 TGA>CGA [Stop>Arg] HGVS Name: HBD:c.442T>C
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: The mutation results in the synthesis of a longer polypeptide by 15 amino acids before the new stop codon is reached. Possibly removed by mechanisms for the degradation of aberrant proteins. Detected in a molecular diagnostics laboratory in Italy.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
