|Mutation Codon||Trp -> TER|
|Mutation Triplet||TGG -> TAG|
First of all, we explored the amino acid properties and compared them for the original and the mutated amino acid. Therefore we created the possible effect that the mutation could have on the protein.
|aromatic, polar, hydrophobic||TER||By this change, the protein is not complete, therefore it is not possible for the protein to fold and to function.|
Visualisation of the Mutation
In the next step, we created the visualization of the muation with PyMol. Therefore we created two pictures: one which displays the original amino acid and one that displays the consequence of the resulting termination. The grey and the red parts of 3D-structure are the original protein whereas the red part shows the remaining protein if there is an exchange of Tryptophan to a stop codon. Here we can see that the remaining red part has only the half size of the protein. Furthermore, the missing part can have an effect on the folding of the remaining part, which this one can fold in a complety other way. Therefore, this muation will have engraving effects on the protein. The protein will probably loose its whole function and is not usable anymore.
This shows that the amino acids have huge structural differences which will probably cause drastical effects on protein structure and function.

Comparison with the real structure:
No prediction available, because the protein ends here.
A detailed list of all possible substitutions can be found [here]
Each entry contains the score at a particular position (row) for an amino acid substitution (column). Substitutions predicted to be intolerant are highlighted in red.
In this case the mutation is from Tryptophan to a stop codon. Therefore, we made no PolyPhen2 prediction, because it is clear that it will cause a damage of the 3D-structure of the protein. Furthermore, it will of course .....
