Long Name
fibroblast growth factor receptor 2
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor receptor family, where amino acid sequence is highly conserved between members and throughout evolution. FGFR family members differ from one another in their ligand affinities and tissue distribution. A full-length representative protein consists of an extracellular region, composed of three immunoglobulin-like domains, a single hydrophobic membrane-spanning segment and a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase domain. The extracellular portion of the protein interacts with fibroblast growth factors, setting in motion a cascade of downstream signals, ultimately influencing mitogenesis and differentiation. This particular family member is a high-affinity receptor for acidic, basic and/or keratinocyte growth factor, depending on the isoform. Mutations in this gene are associated with Crouzon syndrome, Pfeiffer syndrome, Craniosynostosis, Apert syndrome, Jackson-Weiss syndrome, Beare-Stevenson cutis gyrata syndrome, Saethre-Chotzen syndrome, and syndromic craniosynostosis. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been noted for this gene.

The following information is extracted from Structure-PPi, a workflow for the annotation of protein residues. It finds features overlapping the variant or overlapping any residue that is in close physical proximity to the variant: 5 angstroms spatial distance or adjacent in the sequence if no PDB covers that area.

It may also report protein protein interfaces that might be affected by the variant, i.e. when they are at a distance of 8 angstroms from residues from a partner protein.

The structure PDB files used for these calculations are all those associated with the UniProt protein in UniProt and Interactome3D, which extends this set with models of single proteins and protein-protein interaction complexes. Pairwise alignment is used to resolve any sequence discrepancies.

The databases examined are UniProt, InterPro, COSMIC and Appris. The COSMIC database reports variants affecting that residue, not necessarily the same amino-acid change. Appris agglutinates features from FireDB, which are catalytic sites, and ligand-binding sites, and others such as trans-membrane domains, signal peptides, and ligand binding sites.

KinMut Random Forest is a method specific for prediction of the pathogenicity of variants affecting the protein kinase superfamily. It characterizes the variants at the gene, domain and residue level with a combination of general and kinase-specific features. The pathogenicity of variants is evaluated by a random forest algorithm. Predictions are accompanied with a reliability score. Our approach outperforms available methods in a cross-validation experiment on the 3689 kinase variants in Uniprot. (Accuracy: 88.45%, Precision: 81.62%, recall: 75.22%, f-score: 78.29% and MCC: 0.68)
