UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P13569: Variant p.Leu206Trp

Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator
Gene: CFTR
Variant information

Variant position:  206
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 Leucine (L) to Tryptophan (W) at position 206 (L206W, p.Leu206Trp).
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 (L) to large size and aromatic (W)
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:  Congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD) [MIM:277180]: Important cause of sterility in men and could represent an incomplete form of cystic fibrosis, as the majority of men suffering from cystic fibrosis lack the vas deferens. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10651488, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17329263, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7529962, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7539342, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9067761, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9736778, ECO:0000269|Ref.113}.

Involvement in disease:  Cystic fibrosis (CF) [MIM:219700]: A common generalized disorder of the exocrine glands which impairs clearance of secretions in a variety of organs. It is characterized by the triad of chronic bronchopulmonary disease (with recurrent respiratory infections), pancreatic insufficiency (which leads to malabsorption and growth retardation) and elevated sweat electrolytes. It is the most common genetic disease in Caucasians, with a prevalence of about 1 in 2'000 live births. Inheritance is autosomal recessive. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10094564, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11242048, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12167682, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12394343, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12529365, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1284466, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1284468, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1284529, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1284530, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1284548, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1379210, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15528182, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15716351, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16822950, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1695717, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1699669, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17098864, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1710600, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1712898, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17182731, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20008117, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20150177, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20691141, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21884936, ECO:0000269|PubMed:2236053, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25330774, ECO:0000269|PubMed:26846474, ECO:0000269|PubMed:28001373, ECO:0000269|PubMed:28067262, ECO:0000269|PubMed:28087700, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7504969, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7505694, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7513296, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7517264, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7520022, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7522211, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7524909, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7524913, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7525450, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7537150, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7541273, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7541510, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7543567, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7544319, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7581407, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7606851, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7680525, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7683628, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7683954, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8081395, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8406518, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8522333, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8723693, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8723695, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8800923, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8829633, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8910473, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8956039, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9101301, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9222768, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9375855, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9401006, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9443874, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9452048, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9452054, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9452073, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9482579, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9521595, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9554753, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9736778, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9804160, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9921909}.
