Mutation Details for c.1479G>A

Note: this mutation was submitted but not yet reviewed by our curator.

cDNA Name c.1479G>A 
Protein Name p.Gln493Gln 
Exon or Intron  
Other Details Lab report from Sonora Quest Laboratories dated 4/15/2009 states: The novel CFTR gene variant detected is R1479K. It is caused by a G>A change at nucleotide 4568 in exon 24 of the CFTR gene. This single nucleotide substitution led to the replacement of an arginine by lysine at position 1479 of the translated CFTR protein. R1479 is not a well conserved amino acid among CFTR orthologs. Nevertheless, analysis of the R1479K change using PolyPhen, an online tool for prediction of the effect of amino acid changes in protein structure and function, indicated that the R1479K change is "possibly damaging".
