UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot O60832: Variant p.Ser121Gly

H/ACA ribonucleoprotein complex subunit DKC1
Gene: DKC1
Variant information

Variant position:  121
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 Serine (S) to Glycine (G) at position 121 (S121G, p.Ser121Gly).
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 small size and polar (S) to glycine (G)
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:  Hoyeraal-Hreidarsson syndrome (HHS) [MIM:305000]: A clinically severe variant of dyskeratosis congenita that is characterized by multisystem involvement, early onset in utero, and often results in death in childhood. Affected individuals show intrauterine growth retardation, microcephaly, cerebellar hypoplasia, delayed development, and bone marrow failure resulting in immunodeficiency. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10583221, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12437656, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19734544, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24914498}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
The name and a short description of the disease associated with the variant. For more information about the disease, the user can refer to OMIM, following the link provided after the disease acronym.

Variant description:  In HHS; no effect on interaction with SHQ1.

Sequence information

Variant position:  121
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  514
The length of the canonical sequence.

Location on the sequence:   SSHEVVAWIRRILRVEKTGH  S GTLDPKVTGCLIVCIERATR
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.
