UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P35575: Variant p.Gln20Arg

Glucose-6-phosphatase
Gene: G6PC
Chromosomal location: 17q21
Variant information

Variant position:  20
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 Glutamine (Q) to Arginine (R) at position 20 (Q20R, p.Gln20Arg).
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 polar (Q) to large size and basic (R)
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:  Glycogen storage disease 1A (GSD1A) [MIM:232200]: A metabolic disorder characterized by impairment of terminal steps of glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis. Patients manifest a wide range of clinical symptoms and biochemical abnormalities, including hypoglycemia, severe hepatomegaly due to excessive accumulation of glycogen, kidney enlargement, growth retardation, lactic acidemia, hyperlipidemia, and hyperuricemia. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10070617, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10094563, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10447271, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10612834, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10738005, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10748407, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10874313, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10960498, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11058903, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11058910, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12373566, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15151508, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15316959, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15542400, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7573034, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7623438, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7655466, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8182131, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8733042, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9001800, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9332655, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9506659, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9700612, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9700613}.
