Compound heterozygosity for Hb S [beta6(A3)GluVal, GAG-->GTG] and a new thalassemic mutation [beta132(H10)Lys-->term, AAA-->TAA] detected in a family from West Africa


Frischknecht, H; Troxler, H; Greiner, J; Hengartner, H; Dutly, F (2008). Compound heterozygosity for Hb S [beta6(A3)GluVal, GAG-->GTG] and a new thalassemic mutation [beta132(H10)Lys-->term, AAA-->TAA] detected in a family from West Africa. Hemoglobin, 32(3):309-313.

Abstract

We describe a Hb S/beta-thalassemia (beta-thal) mutation involving an AT transition at codon 132 of the beta-globin gene. The mutation, in the heterozygous state, unlike several other mutations in exon 3, shows no signs of dominant thalassemia but those of a typical beta(0) carrier. Compound heterozygosity with Hb S [beta6(A3)GluVal, GAGGTG] showed a severe clinical picture.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
