UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P05106: Variant p.Arg662Cys

Integrin beta-3
Gene: ITGB3
Variant information

Variant position:  662
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 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 Arginine (R) to Cysteine (C) at position 662 (R662C, p.Arg662Cys).
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 large size and basic (R) to medium size and polar (C)
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:  Position 59 is associated with platelet-specific alloantigen HPA-1 (ZW or PL(A)). HPA-1A/ZW(A)/PL(A1) has Leu-59 and HPA-1B/ZW(B)/PL(A2) has Pro-59. HPA-1A is involved in fetal-maternal alloimmune thromobocytopenia (FMAIT) as well as in neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT).Position 169 is associated with platelet-specific alloantigen HPA-4 (PEN or YUK). HPA-4A/PEN(A)/YUK(A) has Arg-169 and HPA-4B/PEN(B)/YUK(B) has Gln-169. HPA-4B is involved in neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT or NATP). - Position 433 is associated with platelet-specific alloantigen MO. MO(-) has Pro-433 and MO(+) has Ala-433. MO(+) is involved in NAIT. - Position 515 is associated with platelet-specific alloantigen CA/TU. CA(-)/TU(-) has Arg-515 and CA(+)/TU(+) has Gln-515. CA(+) is involved in NAIT. - Position 662 is associated with platelet-specific alloantigen SR(A). SR(A)(-) has Arg-662 and SR(A)(+) has Cys-662. -

Sequence information

Variant position:  662
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  788
The length of the canonical sequence.

Location on the sequence:   ECKKFDRGALHDENTCNRYC  R DEIESVKELKDTGKDAVNCT
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.
