UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P32004: Variant p.Asp202Tyr

Neural cell adhesion molecule L1
Gene: L1CAM
Variant information

Variant position:  202
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 Aspartate (D) to Tyrosine (Y) at position 202 (D202Y, p.Asp202Tyr).
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 acidic (D) to large size and aromatic (Y)
The physico-chemical property of the reference and variant residues and the change implicated.

BLOSUM score:  -3
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:  Mental retardation, aphasia, shuffling gait, and adducted thumbs syndrome (MASA) [MIM:303350]: An X-linked recessive syndrome with a highly variable clinical spectrum. Main clinical features include spasticity and hyperreflexia of lower limbs, shuffling gait, mental retardation, aphasia and adducted thumbs. The features of spasticity have been referred to as complicated spastic paraplegia type 1 (SPG1). Some patients manifest corpus callosum hypoplasia and hydrocephalus. Inter- and intrafamilial variability is very wide, such that patients with hydrocephalus, MASA, SPG1, and agenesis of corpus callosum can be present within the same family. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10797421, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10805190, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11857550, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16816908, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19846429, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22344793, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22973895, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24155914, ECO:0000269|PubMed:26891472, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7562969, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7762552, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7881431, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7920659, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7920660, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8556302, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9268105, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9300653, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9452110, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9521424, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9744477, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9832035}.

Sequence information

Variant position:  202
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  1257
The length of the canonical sequence.

Location on the sequence:   DERVTMGQNGNLYFANVLTS  D NHSDYICHAHFPGTRTIIQK
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.
