UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P05186: Variant p.Arg246Ser

Alkaline phosphatase, tissue-nonspecific isozyme
Gene: ALPL
Chromosomal location: 1p34-p36.1
Variant information

Variant position:  246
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 Serine (S) at position 246 (R246S, p.Arg246Ser).
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 small size and polar (S)
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:  Hypophosphatasia (HOPS) [MIM:146300]: A metabolic bone disease characterized by defective skeletal mineralization and biochemically by deficient activity of the tissue non-specific isoenzyme of alkaline phosphatase. Four forms are distinguished, depending on the age of onset: perinatal, infantile, childhood and adult type. The perinatal form is the most severe and is almost always fatal. The adult form is mild and characterized by recurrent fractures, osteomalacia, rickets, and loss of teeth. Some cases are asymptomatic, while some patients manifest dental features without skeletal manifestations (odontohypophosphatasia). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10094560, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10332035, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10679946, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10690885, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10834525, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11438998, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11479741, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11745997, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11760847, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11834095, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11855933, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11999978, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12815606, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12920074, ECO:0000269|PubMed:1409720, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15135428, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15694177, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19500388, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22266140, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23039266, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23688511, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25982064, ECO:0000269|PubMed:3174660, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7833929, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8406453, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8954059, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9452105, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9747027, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9781036}.

Sequence information

Variant position:  246
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  524
The length of the canonical sequence.

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.
