UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot P38398: Variant p.Thr1685Ala

Breast cancer type 1 susceptibility protein
Gene: BRCA1
Variant information

Variant position:  1685
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Type of variant:  US
The variants are classified into three categories: LP/P, LB/B and US.
  • LP/P: likely pathogenic or pathogenic.
  • LB/B: likely benign or benign.
  • US: uncertain significance

Residue change:  From Threonine (T) to Alanine (A) at position 1685 (T1685A, p.Thr1685Ala).
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 polar (T) to small size and hydrophobic (A)
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).

Sequence information

Variant position:  1685
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  1863
The length of the canonical sequence.

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.

Chain 1 – 1863 Breast cancer type 1 susceptibility protein
Domain 1642 – 1736 BRCT 1
Alternative sequence 64 – 1863 Missing. In isoform 2.
Mutagenesis 1666 – 1666 Y -> A. Does not abolish ABRAXAS1 binding, but impairs formation of a heterotetramer with ABRAXAS1.
Mutagenesis 1670 – 1670 R -> E. Impairs formation of a heterotetramer with ABRAXAS1.
Mutagenesis 1671 – 1671 K -> E. Impairs formation of a heterotetramer with ABRAXAS1.
Mutagenesis 1700 – 1700 T -> A. Strongly reduces affinity for a BRIP1 phosphopeptide.
Mutagenesis 1702 – 1702 K -> M. Abolishes interaction with BRIP1.
