IthaID: 3965

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: CD 84-87 (-CTTTGCCACA) (+TTTTTCTCAG) HGVS Name: HBB:c.255_264delinsTTTTTCTCAG
Hb Name: Hb Wanjiang Protein Info: N/A

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as: Hb Donguan-Dongcheng

Comments: Found in a male and his father presented with normal hematological features. The variant results from a 10 bp deletion at codons 84-87 of the β-globin chain, replaced with 10 nucleotides coming from the δ-globin gene at the same position, leading to the substitution of two amino acids in the peptide chain with no change in the β-globin chain length. The abnormal Hb variant was not detectable by CE and HPLC. Found in 8 healthy individuals from southern China during premarital/antenatal screening.
