UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P35475: Variant p.Gly51Asp

Alpha-L-iduronidase
Gene: IDUA
Chromosomal location: 4p16.3
Variant information

Variant position:  51
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Type of variant:  Disease [Disclaimer]
The variants are classified into three categories: Disease, Polymorphism and Unclassified.
  • Disease: Variants have been found in patients and disease-association is reported in literature. However, this classification is not a definitive assessment of variant pathogenicity.
  • Polymorphism: No disease-association has been reported.
  • Unclassified: Variants have been found in patients but disease-association remains unclear.

Residue change:  From Glycine (G) to Aspartate (D) at position 51 (G51D, p.Gly51Asp).
Indicates the amino acid change of the variant. The one-letter and three-letter codes for amino acids used in UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot are those adopted by the commission on Biochemical Nomenclature of the IUPAC-IUB.

Physico-chemical properties:  Change from glycine (G) to medium size and acidic (D)
The physico-chemical property of the reference and variant residues and the change implicated.

BLOSUM score:  -1
The score within a Blosum matrix for the corresponding wild-type to variant amino acid change. The log-odds score measures the logarithm for the ratio of the likelihood of two amino acids appearing by chance. The Blosum62 substitution matrix is used. This substitution matrix contains scores for all possible exchanges of one amino acid with another:
  • Lowest score: -4 (low probability of substitution).
  • Highest score: 11 (high probability of substitution).

Involvement in disease:  Mucopolysaccharidosis 1H (MPS1H) [MIM:607014]: A severe form of mucopolysaccharidosis type 1, a rare lysosomal storage disease characterized by progressive physical deterioration with urinary excretion of dermatan sulfate and heparan sulfate. Patients with MPS1H usually present, within the first year of life, a combination of hepatosplenomegaly, skeletal deformities, corneal clouding and severe mental retardation. Obstructive airways disease, respiratory infection and cardiac complications usually result in death before 10 years of age. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10466419, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10735634, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12559846, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1301941, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15300847, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21394825, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7550232, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7550242, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7951228, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8019563, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8328452, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8401515, ECO:0000269|Ref.20}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.

Sequence information

Variant position:  51
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  653
The length of the canonical sequence.

Location on the sequence:   LVHVDAARALWPLRRFWRST  G FCPPLPHSQADQYVLSWDQQ
The residue change on the sequence. Unless the variant is located at the beginning or at the end of the protein sequence, both residues upstream (20) and downstream (20) of the variant will be shown.

Residue conservation: 
The multiple alignment of the region surrounding the variant against various orthologous sequences.

Sequence annotation in neighborhood:  
The regions or sites of interest surrounding the variant. In general the features listed are posttranslational modifications, binding sites, enzyme active sites, local secondary structure or other characteristics reported in the cited references. The "Sequence annotation in neighborhood" lines have a fixed format:
  • Type: the type of sequence feature.
  • Positions: endpoints of the sequence feature.
  • Description: contains additional information about the feature.
