|Mutation Codon||Ile -> Val|
|Mutation Triplt||ATA -> GTA|
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.
|aliphatic, hydrophobic, neutra||aliphatic, hydrophobic, neutral||In this case, the pysicochemical properties are equal. Furthermore, they almost agree in their size. Therefore, we suggest, that there is no big effect on the 3D structure of the protein and therefore, also no big effect on the protein function.|
Visualisation of the Mutation
In the next step, we created the visualization of the muation with PyMol. Therefore we created a picture for the original amino acid, for the new mutated amino acid and finally for both together in one picture whereas the mutation is white colored. The following pictures display the mutation from Isoleucine to Valine. Isoleucine is longer than Valine and one part spreads in the other direction than this of Valine. Valine is small and forks at its end. All in all, the differencesof both amino acids is not so drastical and therefore the protein will probably not have a strutural and functional change.

Conservation Analysis with Multiple Alignments
As a next step we created a multiple alignment which contains the HEXA sequence and 9 other mammalian homologous sequences from uniprot. Afterwards we looked at the position of the different mutations and looked at the conservation level on this position. The regarded mutation is presented by the second colored column. Here we can see, that almost all other mammalians have another amino acid on this position. Therefore, the mutation on this position is not highly conserved and a mutation there will cause probably no huge structural and functional changes for the protein.

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.
Threshold for intolerance is 0.05.
Amino acid color code: nonpolar, uncharged polar, basic, acidic.
Capital letters indicate amino acids appearing in the alignment, lower case letters result from prediction.
