 12R -> C (in CTRCT9; dbSNP:rs397515624). VAR_070032 dbSNP
 21R -> L (in CTRCT9; associated with macular hypoplasia and a generally hypopigmented fundus). VAR_046892
 49R -> C (in CTRCT9; nuclear cataract; dbSNP:rs74315441). VAR_038375 dbSNP
 105D -> H (in a breast cancer sample; somatic mutation). VAR_036564
 116R -> C (in CTRCT9; zonular central nuclear cataract; reduced chaperone-like activity and increased membrane-binding capacity; dbSNP:rs74315439). VAR_003819 dbSNP
 116R -> H (in CTRCT9; reverse phase-high- performance liquid chromatography suggests an increase hydrophobicity of the mutant protein; loss of chaperone activity of the mutant is seen in DL- dithiothreitol-induced insulin aggregation assay; fast protein liquid chromatography purification shows that the mutant protein has increased binding affinity to lysozyme; dbSNP:rs121912973).
