UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Q8WZA1: Variant p.Pro493Arg

Protein O-linked-mannose beta-1,2-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 1
Gene: POMGNT1
Chromosomal location: 1p34.1
Variant information

Variant position:  493
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 Proline (P) to Arginine (R) at position 493 (P493R, p.Pro493Arg).
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 (P) to large size and basic (R)
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:  Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy congenital with brain and eye anomalies A3 (MDDGA3) [MIM:253280]: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by congenital muscular dystrophy, ocular abnormalities, cobblestone lissencephaly, and cerebellar and pontine hypoplasia. Patients present severe congenital myopia, congenital glaucoma, pallor of the optic disks, retinal hypoplasia, mental retardation, hydrocephalus, abnormal electroencephalograms, generalized muscle weakness and myoclonic jerks. Included diseases are the more severe Walker-Warburg syndrome and the slightly less severe muscle-eye-brain disease. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:11709191, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12588800, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12788071, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15207699, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15236414, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15466003, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17030669, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19067344}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.

Sequence information

Variant position:  493
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  660
The length of the canonical sequence.

Location on the sequence:   WDWDMWMRMPEQRRGRECII  P DVSRSYHFGIVGLNMNGYFH
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.
