IthaID: 3299

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: Pathogenic / Likely Pathogenic
Common Name: CD 77/78 (+C) HGVS Name: HBB:c.235dupC
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: Found as a heterozygote. This mutation causes an insertion in the normal reading frame of the β-globin coding sequence and a new stop codon at β90, resulting in premature arrest of protein synthesis.
