UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot O95255: Variant p.Arg1235Trp

Multidrug resistance-associated protein 6
Gene: ABCC6
Chromosomal location: 16p13.1
Variant information

Variant position:  1235
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 Tryptophan (W) at position 1235 (R1235W, p.Arg1235Trp).
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 large size and aromatic (W)
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:  Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) [MIM:264800]: A multisystem disorder characterized by accumulation of mineralized and fragmented elastic fibers in the skin, vascular walls, and Burch membrane in the eye. Clinically, patients exhibit characteristic lesions of the posterior segment of the eye including peau d'orange, angioid streaks, and choroidal neovascularizations, of the skin including soft, ivory colored papules in a reticular pattern that predominantly affect the neck and large flexor surfaces, and of the cardiovascular system with peripheral and coronary arterial occlusive disease as well as gastrointestinal bleedings. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10811882, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10835642, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10954200, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11427982, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11536079, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11702217, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11880368, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15086542, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15098239, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15459974, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16086317, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17617515, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19339160, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20034067, ECO:0000269|PubMed:25615550}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Homozygous or compound heterozygous ABCC6 mutations have been found in the overwhelming majority of cases. Individuals carrying heterozygous mutations express limited manifestations of the pseudoxanthoma elasticum phenotype.

Sequence information

Variant position:  1235
The position of the amino-acid change on the UniProtKB canonical protein sequence.

Protein sequence length:  1503
The length of the canonical sequence.

Location on the sequence:   TLQWVVRNWTDLENSIVSVE  R MQDYAWTPKEAPWRLPTCAA
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.
