This variant is reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 15112), and is absent from general population databases (Exome Variant Server, Genome Aggregation Database), indicating it is not a common polymorphism. The tyrosine at codon 146 is highly conserved, and functional analyses of the variant protein show increased oxygen affinity (see link to HbVar, Franklin 1986). Additionally, other amino acid substitutions at this codon (Hb Nancy, Hb Osler, Hb Rainier, Hb McKees Rocks) have been reported in individuals with erythrocytosis and are considered pathogenic (HbVar IDs: 571, 572, 573, 574), and several hemoglobin variants with high oxygen affinity leading to erythrocytosis are located at the carboxy-terminal end of the HBB gene (Wajcman 2004). Based on available information, the Hb Bethesda variant is considered to be pathogenic.
