[…] The possible impact of amino acid substitution on the structure and function of human proteins was estimated with in silico prediction of protein function with the following tools: SIFT ( and PolyPhen-2 ( To estimate the importance of the novel mutations, Vertebrate MultiZ Alignment and Conservation of the region surrounding each affected residue were obtained from the UCSC genome browser ( The reference sequences used for MYBPC1 gene with these tools were ENSP00000354849 or ENST00000361466 (Ensembl).
