UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P21549: Variant p.Arg233His

Serine--pyruvate aminotransferase
Gene: AGXT
Chromosomal location: 2q37.3
Variant information

Variant position:  233
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 Arginine (R) to Histidine (H) at position 233 (R233H, p.Arg233His).
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 (H)
The physico-chemical property of the reference and variant residues and the change implicated.

BLOSUM score:  0
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:  Hyperoxaluria primary 1 (HP1) [MIM:259900]: An inborn error of glyoxylate metabolism characterized by increased excretion of oxalate and glycolate, and progressive tissue accumulation of insoluble calcium oxalate. Affected individuals are at risk for nephrolithiasis, nephrocalcinosis and early onset end-stage renal disease. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10394939, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10453743, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10541294, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10862087, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10960483, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12559847, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12777626, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1301173, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1349575, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15253729, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15849466, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15961946, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15963748, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16971151, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1703535, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17495019, ECO:0000269|PubMed:2039493, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23229545, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24055001, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24934730, ECO:0000269|PubMed:26149463, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8101040, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9192270, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9604803}.
