UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Q16678: Variant p.Arg368His

Cytochrome P450 1B1
Gene: CYP1B1
Variant information

Variant position:  368
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 Histidine (H) at position 368 (R368H, p.Arg368His).
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 medium size and polar (H)
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:  Glaucoma 3, primary congenital, A (GLC3A) [MIM:231300]: An autosomal recessive form of primary congenital glaucoma (PCG). PCG is characterized by marked increase of intraocular pressure at birth or early childhood, large ocular globes (buphthalmos) and corneal edema. It results from developmental defects of the trabecular meshwork and anterior chamber angle of the eye that prevent adequate drainage of aqueous humor. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10227395, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10655546, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11184479, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11527932, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11774072, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11980847, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12036985, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12525557, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14635112, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14640114, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15255109, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15342693, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15475877, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16490498, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16688110, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16735994, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16862072, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18470941, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9463332, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9497261}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting distinct genetic loci, including 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.

Involvement in disease:  Glaucoma 1, open angle, A (GLC1A) [MIM:137750]: A form of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). POAG is characterized by a specific pattern of optic nerve and visual field defects. The angle of the anterior chamber of the eye is open, and usually the intraocular pressure is increased. However, glaucoma can occur at any intraocular pressure. The disease is generally asymptomatic until the late stages, by which time significant and irreversible optic nerve damage has already taken place. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11774072}. Note=The gene represented in this entry acts as a disease modifier. Digenic mutations in CYP1B1 and MYOC have been found in a family segregating both primary adult-onset and juvenile forms of open angle glaucoma (PubMed:11774072). All affected family members with mutations in both MYOC and CYP1B1 had juvenile glaucoma, whereas those with only the MYOC mutation had the adult-onset form (PubMed:11774072). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11774072}.
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 GLC3A and GLC1A; acts as GLC1A disease modifier in patients also carrying Val-399 mutation in MYOC.
