FANS Functional Analysis for Novel SNPs and Mutations Biomedical IT National Genotyping Center 05/29/09 http://fans.ngc.sinica.edu.tw
What can FANS do for me?
If you have novel SNPs or point mutations, FANS will predict their functional effects before your assays.
What does FANS do?
Predict the Functional Effects of variations on Human and Mouse.
Classify the effects into 4 risk levels.
Prioritize the risks for variations.
HIGH LOW 31347-A 50312+C 50940+G
Variation Location (NCBI RefSeq)
Coding Region / Splice-Site
Pre-mRNA Splicing (MIT, Burge Lab)
Exon Splicing Enhancer(238) / Silencer(279)
Amino Acid Change (Entrez Gene)
Stop Codon / Non-Synonymous
Protein Domain (NCBI Protein DB)
Protein Function (SIFT)
Risk Analysis Flow VERY HIGHT VERY LOW RISK LEVEL HIGH MEDIUM No Splice-site? Yes Risk : High Splice site No SNPs in intron and untranslated region are not analyzed Non-synonymous? Risk : Very High Non-sense? Coding? Risk : High ESE or ESS Motif Diminished? Risk : Medium Non-sense Mis-sense (non-conservative change) Risk : High Mis-sense (protein domain abolished) Mis-sense (conservative change) Protein Structure Affection? ESE or ESS Motif Diminished? Protein Domain Abolished? Risk : High Splicing regulation (protein domain abolished) Protein Domain Abolished? Risk : Medium Splicing regulation Risk : Very Low Sense Variations in Transcripts Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No No No No No No No

Risk Types & Risk Levels High Alters GT-AG splice site Splice site Non-coding Very Low Does not change amino acid and disrupt exon splicing regulation Sense Medium Disrupts exon splicing regulation, make the same protein domain Splicing regulation High Disrupts exon splicing regulation, make protein domain abolished Splicing regulation (protein domain abolished) Medium Does not change ESE, ESS and known protein domain and results in analogous protein structure Mis-sense (conservative change) High Changes ESE, ESS and known protein domain and results in protein structure abolished Mis-sense (protein domain abolished) High Predicts to affect protein structure Mis-sense (non-conservative change) Very High Causes premature stop codon and affects protein function Non-sense Coding Risk level Possible functional effect Risk type Coding type

One point mutation on human chromosome 4 at position 1,775,917 causes a nucleotide change to cytosine.
Achondroplasia ( 軟骨發育不全症 )
Achondroplasia is one of the most common causes of dwarfism. The appearance is of short stature with disproportionately short arms and legs and a large head.
Mutations involve the gene encoding fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 ( FGFR3 ), situated on chromosome 4. Most commonly, a point mutation causes the substitution of arginine for glycine ( G380R ) in the transmembrane region of the receptor.
