UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P49768: Variant p.Leu174Met

Gene: PSEN1
Variant information

Variant position:  174
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 Methionine (M) at position 174 (L174M, p.Leu174Met).
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:  Similar physico-chemical property. Both residues are medium size and hydrophobic.
The physico-chemical property of the reference and variant residues and the change implicated.

BLOSUM score:  2
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:  Alzheimer disease 3 (AD3) [MIM:607822]: A familial early-onset form of Alzheimer disease. Alzheimer disease is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive dementia, loss of cognitive abilities, and deposition of fibrillar amyloid proteins as intraneuronal neurofibrillary tangles, extracellular amyloid plaques and vascular amyloid deposits. The major constituents of these plaques are neurotoxic amyloid-beta protein 40 and amyloid-beta protein 42, that are produced by the proteolysis of the transmembrane APP protein. The cytotoxic C-terminal fragments (CTFs) and the caspase-cleaved products, such as C31, are also implicated in neuronal death. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10025789, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10090481, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10200054, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10208579, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10439444, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10441572, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10447269, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10533070, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10631141, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10644793, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11027672, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11524469, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11561050, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11568920, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11701593, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11710891, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11796781, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11920851, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12048239, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12058025, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12370477, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12484344, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12493737, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12552037, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15004326, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15122701, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15364419, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15534188, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15534260, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15851849, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16305624, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16344340, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16628450, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16752394, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16897084, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16959576, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17366635, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17428795, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17502474, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18430735, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19667325, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19797784, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20164095, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20460383, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21335660, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21501661, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22461631, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22503161, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22529981, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23123781, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23843529, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24121961, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24495933, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24582897, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25394380, ECO:0000269|PubMed:26145164, ECO:0000269|PubMed:26280335, ECO:0000269|PubMed:26549787, ECO:0000269|PubMed:27073747, ECO:0000269|PubMed:27930341, ECO:0000269|PubMed:29175279, ECO:0000269|PubMed:29404783, ECO:0000269|PubMed:29466804, ECO:0000269|PubMed:30180983, ECO:0000269|PubMed:30200536, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7550356, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7596406, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7651536, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8634711, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8634712, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8733303, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8837617, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9172170, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9225696, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9298817, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9384602, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9507958, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9521423, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9719376, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9831473, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9833068, ECO:0000269|Ref.92}.
