IthaID: 3657

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: CD 26 GCG>ACG [Ala>Thr];CD 130 GCT>CCT [Ala>Pro] HGVS Name: HBA2:c.[79G>A;391G>C]
Hb Name: Hb Southern Italy Protein Info: α2 26(B7) Ala>Thr AND α2 130(H13) Ala>Pro

Also known as:

Comments: Heterozygotes showed mild microcythemia with normal iron metabolism, normal levels of Hb A2, and no observation of Hb variants by cation-exchange HPLC or cellulose acetate electrophoresis. The two mutations were associated in cis with the SNP +861G>A [IthaID: 3301] in the carriers.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
