IthaID: 3298

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: Pathogenic / Likely Pathogenic
Common Name: CD 60-61 (-6bp): (-TGAAGG) HGVS Name: HBB:c.182_187delTGAAGG
Hb Name: Hb Tavapy Protein Info: N/A

Also known as:

Comments: Found as a heterozygote. The deletion results in loss of the valine and lysine of codons 60 and 61, which correpond to positions 4 and 5 of the 'E' α-helix of the β-globin chain, respectively.
