UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P04150: Variant p.Leu112Phe

Glucocorticoid receptor
Gene: NR3C1
Variant information

Variant position:  112
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Type of variant:  Polymorphism
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 112 (L112F, p.Leu112Phe).
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).

Polymorphism:  Carriers of the 22-Glu-Lys-23 allele are relatively more resistant to the effects of GCs with respect to the sensitivity of the adrenal feedback mechanism than non-carriers, resulting in a better metabolic health profile. Carriers have a better survival than non-carriers, as well as lower serum CRP levels. The 22-Glu-Lys-23 polymorphism is associated with a sex-specific, beneficial body composition at young-adult age, as well as greater muscle strength in males.

Sequence information

Variant position:  112
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  777
The length of the canonical sequence.

Location on the sequence:   ETETKVMGNDLGFPQQGQIS  L SSGETDLKLLEESIANLNRS
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.

TypePositionsDescription
Chain 1 – 777 Glucocorticoid receptor
Region 1 – 420 Modulating
Region 98 – 115 Required for high transcriptional activity of isoform Alpha-C3
Modified residue 113 – 113 Phosphoserine
Alternative sequence 1 – 335 Missing. In isoform Alpha-D3.
Alternative sequence 1 – 330 Missing. In isoform Alpha-D2.
Alternative sequence 1 – 315 Missing. In isoform Alpha-D1.
Mutagenesis 98 – 98 M -> I. Abolishes expression of C-type isoforms; when associated with I-86 and I-90.
Mutagenesis 101 – 101 D -> A. Reduces transcription activation activity of isoform Alpha-C3 by half.
Mutagenesis 101 – 101 D -> K. Reduces transcription activation activity of isoform Alpha-C3 by half. Suppresses apoptosis-inducing activity of isoform Alpha-C3. Impairs recruitment of selected coregulators onto DNA binding sites.
