A major challenge in the analysis of human genetic variation is to distinguish functional from nonfunctional SNPs. Discovering these functional SNPs is one of the main goals of modern genetics and genomics studies. There is a need to effectively and efficiently identify functionally important nsSNPs which may be deleterious or disease causing and to(More)
Ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) (E.C. 2.1.3.3) is one of the enzymes in the urea cycle, which involves in a sequence of reactions in the liver cells. During protein assimilation in our body surplus nitrogen is made, this open nitrogen is altered into urea and expelled out of the body by kidneys, in this cycle OTC helps in the conversion of free toxic(More)
Uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase is a cytosolic enzyme involved in the biosynthetic pathway of heme production. Decreased activity of this enzyme results in porphyria cutanea tarda and hepato erythropoietic porphyria. Nonsynonymous single nucleotide polymorphisms (nsSNPs) alter protein sequence and can cause disease. Identifying the deleterious nsSNPs that(More)
Cystathionine β-synthase is an essential enzyme of the trans-sulfuration pathway that condenses serine with homocysteine to form cystathionine. Missense mutations in CBS are the major cause of inherited homocystinuria, and the detailed effect of disease associated amino acid substitutions on the structure and stability of human CBS is yet unknown. Here, we(More)
