SLC3A1 M467K - GET-Evidence

Note: This variant has not been sufficiently evaluated by a GET-Evidence editor.

To be considered sufficiently evaluated a variant must have both "variant evidence" and "clinical importance" scores filled in.

Please help improve GET-Evidence by evaluating evidence for this variant!


SLC3A1 M467K

(SLC3A1 Met467Lys)

Short summary


Variant evidence
Computational 2

Other variants within this gene appear to cause the disease as well. Calonge et al. mention that M467 is a highly conserved residue.

See Calonge MJ et al. 1994 (8054986), unpublished research (below).


See unpublished research (below).


OR = 17.9, but significance is weak (p = 0.059).

See unpublished research (below).

Clinical importance
Severity -
Treatability 4

In patients with symptoms standard treatment involves adequate hydration and dietary modification and, if these are insufficient, chelation therapy.

See unpublished research (below).

Calonge MJ, Gasparini P, Chillarón J, Chillón M, Gallucci M, Rousaud F, Zelante L, Testar X, Dallapiccola B, Di Silverio F, et al. Cystinuria caused by mutations in rBAT, a gene involved in the transport of cystine. Nat Genet. 1994 Apr;6(4):420-5. PubMed PMID: 8054986.

In a screen for missense mutations in rBAT in five cells lines derived from patients, one was heterozygous for this mutation. This individual was a compound heterozygote in the gene, also carrying a L678P mutation. None of 31 other cystinuric chromosomes had this mutation, and none of 160 control chromosomes had it. Case positive: 1, case negative: 9, control positive: 0, control negative: 160.
