Comments: Identified by third-generation sequencing (CATSA) in Han ethnic individuals in Hainan Province. Heterozygosity for this α gene defect associated with moderate anemia in the presence of a normal β genotype, and with thalassemia intermedia in the presence of a β mutant allele.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
