General Information

SNP-id rs1800430
Codon 399
Mutation Codon Asn -> Asp
Mutation Triplet AAC -> GAC

Pysicochemical Properities

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.

Asn Asp consequences
polar, small, hydrophilic, negatively charged polar, small, hydrophilic, negatively charged Both amino acids have the same properities and therefore we suggest that an exchange of these two amino acids do not destroy the protein structure and 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 that the mutated amino acid Aspartic acid looks very different to Asparagine. They both agree in the first part of the rest but then go complety in opposite directions. Otherwise both rests fork at the end. All in all, the different directions prevail and will therefore probably cause big structural changes which will cause effects on the protein function.

Subsitution Matrices Values

Afterwards, we looked at the values of the substitution matrices PAM1, PAM250 and BLOSSUM62. Therefore we looked detailed at the three values: the value for accoding amino acid substitution, the most frequent value for the substitution of the examined amino acid and the rarest substitution.

In this case, the substitution of Asparagine to Aspartic acid has very high values that agree with the most frequent value for all three substitution matrices. Therefore, according to all matrices a mutation at this position will probably not cause structural changes which can affect functional changes.

SIFT Prediction

SIFT Matrix:
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.
