Polymorphism Description: This polymorphism in the HD gene is due to deletion of one of four consecutive GAG codons (Glu) at positions 2642-2645.This polymorphism is commonly called delta 2642.This polymorphism is intragenic and found approximately 150 kb centromeric to the HD mutation.This deletion is known to be rare in normal chromosomes but overrepresented in HD chromosomes. Alleles with or without del2642 are designated del+ and del- respectively.
