UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P12883: Variant p.Leu908Val

Gene: MYH7
Chromosomal location: 14q12
Variant information

Variant position:  908
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 Valine (V) at position 908 (L908V, p.Leu908Val).
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:  Similar physico-chemical property. Both residues are medium size and hydrophobic.
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:  Cardiomyopathy, familial hypertrophic 1 (CMH1) [MIM:192600]: A hereditary heart disorder characterized by ventricular hypertrophy, which is usually asymmetric and often involves the interventricular septum. The symptoms include dyspnea, syncope, collapse, palpitations, and chest pain. They can be readily provoked by exercise. The disorder has inter- and intrafamilial variability ranging from benign to malignant forms with high risk of cardiac failure and sudden cardiac death. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10065021, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10329202, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10521296, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10563488, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10679957, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10862102, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11113006, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11133230, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11214007, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11424919, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11733062, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11861413, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11968089, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12081993, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12566107, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12590187, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12707239, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12818575, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12820698, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12951062, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12974739, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12975413, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1417858, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15358028, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15483641, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1552912, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15563892, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15856146, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15858117, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16199542, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16267253, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1638703, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16650083, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16938236, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17095604, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17372140, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18175163, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18403758, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1975517, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25182012, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7581410, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7731997, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7848441, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7874131, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8250038, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8254035, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8268932, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8282798, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8343162, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8435239, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8483915, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8655135, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8899546, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9544842, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9822100, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9829907}.
