Also known as:

Comments: Proband was heterozygous for the variant and required a single transfusion of erythrocytes for haemolytic anaemia early in infancy. Unstable Hb variant by heat stability test. This mutation affects the highly conserved glycine residue at helical position B6 and its replacement with bulkier amino acids disrupts packing between the B and E helices, resulting in Hb instability. The proband was also carrier for a 3'UTR variation of uncertain significance (rs575079820).

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
