A probabilistic method to identify compensatory substitutions for pathogenic mutations
Complex systems of interactions govern the structure and function of biomolecules. Mutations that substantially disrupt these interactions are deleterious and should not persist under selection. Yet, several instances have been reported where a variant confirmed as pathogenic in one species is fixed in the orthologs of other species. Here we introduce a novel method for detecting compensatory substitutions for these so-called compensated pathogenic deviations (CPDs), incorporating knowledge of...[Show more]
