IthaID: 893

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Globin gene causative mutation Pathogenicity: Variant of Uncertain Significance
Common Name: CD 26 GAG>GGG HGVS Name: HBB:c.80A>G
Hb Name: Hb Aubenas Protein Info: β 26(B8) Glu>Gly

Context nucleotide sequence:

Protein sequence:

Comments: Found in a proband of French origin and in one of her two siblings without haematological or clinical features. Parents refused testing. Blood smears showed anisocytosis. The abnormal Hb was revealed by isoelectrofocusing (IEF), cellulose acetate electrophoresis and cation exchange HPLC. Slightly unstable as detected by the isopropanol test. Normal α/β biosynthetic ratio. In contrast to HbE (HBB:c.79G>A), this base substitution does not lead to a consensus nt sequence for splicing.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
