Routine hemoglobin (Hb) analyses identified a new β-globin variant in a family from East Timor. The red cell indices were within normal limits for all affected family members. The variant is due to a missense mutation at amino acid codon 80 (AAC>CAC) which results in the substitution of histidine for asparagine.
We describe two frameshift mutations associated with an α-thalassemia (α-thal) phenotype, identified in three unrelated individuals investigated for persistent microcytosis. The first mutation, HBA2:c.131delT, is located in codon 43, and the second, HBA2:c.143delA, is located in codon 47. Both are due to single base pair deletions that cause a frameshift(More)
The identification of α-thalassemia (α-thal) due to point mutations has been increasing significantly with the advancement of molecular diagnostic tools. We describe here the molecular and cellular characteristics of the thalassemia mutation HBA2:c.94A>C, a novel point mutation affecting the α2-globin gene, causing a mild α-thal phenotype in a male patient(More)
We describe a novel frameshift mutation associated with an α-thalassemia (α-thal) phenotype in a patient of Sudanese origin investigated for persistent microcytosis. In addition to the α(3.7) deletion, a novel mutation on the α2 gene was detected: HBA2:c.323delT. This mutation causes a frameshift at codon 107 of the α2 gene. The result is a disturbed amino(More)
