UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P10275: Variant p.Leu548Phe

Androgen receptor
Gene: AR
Variant information

Variant position:  548
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 Phenylalanine (F) at position 548 (L548F, p.Leu548Phe).
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 (F)
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:  Androgen insensitivity, partial (PAIS) [MIM:312300]: A disorder that is characterized by hypospadias, hypogonadism, gynecomastia, genital ambiguity, normal XY karyotype, and a pedigree pattern consistent with X-linked recessive inheritance. Some patients present azoospermia or severe oligospermia without other clinical manifestations. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10022458, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10221692, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10470409, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10502786, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10543676, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11587068, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1303262, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1307250, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1316540, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1424203, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1430233, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14756668, ECO:0000269|PubMed:2010552, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7581399, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7649358, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7671849, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7909256, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7910529, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7929841, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7970939, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7981687, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8033918, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8097257, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8126121, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8205256, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8281139, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8325932, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8325950, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8446106, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8550758, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8809734, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8823308, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8824883, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9039340, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9196614, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9302173, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9329414, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9543136, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9607727, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9768671, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9856504, ECO:0000269|Ref.121}.
