IthaID: 3605

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: 3'UTR +132 C>T HGVS Name: HBB:c.*132C>T
Hb Name: N/A Protein Info: N/A

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as:

Comments: The mutation is located in the 3' UTR of the β-globin gene. In heterozygous carriers, the mutation causes a silent phenotype with borderline to normal MCV and HbA2 levels, while in compound heterozygosity with severe β-thal mutations; it leads to a mild intermedia β-thal phenotype.
