However, the variant has also been observed in an individual with a clinical diagnosis of beta thalassemia who also carried HbS (Keser 2010). The proline at codon 5 is weakly conserved, and computational programs (PolyPhen-2, SIFT) predict that this variant is tolerated, although isopropanol stability tests indicate this variant is slightly unstable (Pullon 2017, HbVar database). Due to limited information regarding this variant, its clinical significance cannot be determined with certainty. References: Link to HbVar database: Keser I et al.
