UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P17661: Variant p.Ser13Phe

Desmin
Gene: DES
Chromosomal location: 2q35
Variant information

Variant position:  13
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 implicated in disease according to literature reports.
  • Polymorphism: Variants not reported to be implicated in disease.
  • Unclassified: Variants with uncertain implication in disease according to literature reports. Evidence against or in favor of a pathogenic role is limited and/or conflicting.

Residue change:  From Serine (S) to Phenylalanine (F) at position 13 (S13F, p.Ser13Phe).
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 small size and polar (S) to large size and aromatic (F)
The physico-chemical property of the reference and variant residues and the change implicated.

BLOSUM score:  -2
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:  Myopathy, myofibrillar, 1 (MFM1) [MIM:601419]: A form of myofibrillar myopathy, a group of chronic neuromuscular disorders characterized at ultrastructural level by disintegration of the sarcomeric Z disc and myofibrils, and replacement of the normal myofibrillar markings by small dense granules, or larger hyaline masses, or amorphous material. MFM1 is characterized by skeletal muscle weakness associated with cardiac conduction blocks, arrhythmias, restrictive heart failure, and accumulation of desmin-reactive deposits in cardiac and skeletal muscle cells. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10545598, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10717012, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10905661, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11061256, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11668632, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12620971, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12766977, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14648196, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14711882, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14724127, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15495235, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15800015, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16009553, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16865695, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17221859, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18061454, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19879535, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20829228, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22106715, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22395865, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25394388, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9697706, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9736733}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Mutations in the DES gene are associated with a variable clinical phenotype which encompasses isolated myopathies, pure cardiac phenotypes (including dilated cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy), cardiac conduction disease, and combinations of these disorders. If both cardiologic and neurologic features occur, they can manifest in any order, as cardiologic features can precede, occur simultaneously with, or follow manifestation of generalized neuromuscular disease (PubMed:19879535). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:19879535}.

Variant description:  In MFM1; some patients manifest a severe cardiac phenotype with right ventricular predominance.
