The UMD-FBN2 mutations database

Last update 8/09/14

This database includes 17 references and 113 mutations

(60 different mutations and 43 proteic variants)


This database has been compiled to provide up-to-date information about mutations of the FBN2 gene. It aims at making the information readily accessible to anyone interested in the genetic variations of the FBN2 gene, and to provide an easy way for those who investigate these variations to report their most recent findings.
The database of FBN2 mutations was developed using the ‘Universal Mutation Database’ tool. It contains all mutations localized in the coding region (exons) and in the intronic borders (splicing sites area) of the FBN2 gene.


The list of mutations was collated from published articles and abstracts, from presentations at meetings, and from personal communications. If you use this database please cite: The FBN2 gene: new mutations, locus-specific database (Universal Mutation Database FBN2), and genotype-phenotype correlations.

Hum Mutat. 2009 Feb;30(2):181-90. doi: 10.1002/humu.20794.


When the same mutation from the same patient was reported in more than one article, only the first report was taken into account.

For each mutation, information is provided at several levels:
     - at the gene level (exon and codon number, wild type and mutant codon, mutational event, mutation name...),
     - at the protein level (wild type and mutant amino acid...),
     - at the clinical level (phenotypic group: allows to distinguish between different disorders linked to FBN2 mutations and when available clinical details are provided.

Please look at “the gene”, “the proteins”, and “the clinics” buttons (left panel).
For mutation details, use tools available via the “Mutations” button.
More than twenty types of analyses can be performed via the “Statistics” button.
The “references” button allows the selection of references included in the UMD-FBN2 database.
You found a mutation and you want to know if it was identified and published elsewhere, please go to “Mutations” button.
