IthaID: 3284

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: --PG HGVS Name: NC_000016.10:g.93628_542759del450131
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Also known as:

Comments: The deletion spans about 450 kb, removing the entire α-globin gene cluster and the globin distal regulatory elements. The 5' deletion breakpoint was located just upstream of the PolR3k gene (between 91540 - 93628), and the 3' breakpoint was located within the RAB11FIP3 gene (between 536986 - 542759).

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
