IthaID: 3445

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Neutral polymorphism Pathogenicity: Benign / Likely Benign
Common Name: IVS I-13 G>T HGVS Name: HBB:c.92+13G>T

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: This mutation is an innocuous SNP associated with a well-characterised cryptic splice donor site in HBB. The cryptic splice donor is activated by mutations IthaID 101, 102, 103, 107 and 111, leading to aberrant splicing, inclusion of intronic material in the HBB mRNA and beta-thalassaemia. Mutations IthaID 107 and 111 retain residual normal splicing activity, and in their presence this SNP may thus conceivably increase normal splicing and ameliorate the associated phenotype.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
