UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P01909: Variant p.Val73Asp

HLA class II histocompatibility antigen, DQ alpha 1 chain
Gene: HLA-DQA1
Chromosomal location: 6p21.3
Variant information

Variant position:  73
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Type of variant:  Polymorphism
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 Valine (V) to Aspartate (D) at position 73 (V73D, p.Val73Asp).
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 medium size and hydrophobic (V) to medium size and acidic (D)
The physico-chemical property of the reference and variant residues and the change implicated.

BLOSUM score:  -3
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).

Polymorphism:  The following alleles of DQA1 are known: DQA1*01:01, DQA1*01:02, DQA1*01:03, DQA1*01:04, DQA1*01:05, DQA1*01:06, DQA1*01:07, DQA1*02:01, DQA1*03:01, DQA1*03:02, DQA1*03:03, DQA1*04:01, DQA1*04:02, DQA1*04:03, DQA1*04:04, DQA1*05:01, DQA1*05:02, DQA1*05:03, DQA1*05:04, DQA1*05:05, DQA1*05:06, DQA1*05:07, DQA1*05:08, DQA1*05:09, DQA1*06:01, DQA1*06:02. The sequence shown is that of DQA1*05:01.DQ2 (heterodimer of DQA1*05:01/DQB1*02:01) is associated with more than 90% of celiac disease patients. A minority displays DQ8 (heterodimer of DQA1*03/DQB1*03:02). DQ0602 (heterodimer of DQA1*01:02/DQB1*06:02) confers dominant protection against type 1 diabetes (T1D) and strong susceptibility to narcolepsy. -

Sequence information

Variant position:  73
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  254
The length of the canonical sequence.

Location on the sequence:   DGDEQFYVDLGRKETVWCLP  V LRQFRFDPQFALTNIAVLKH
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.

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.
