KinMutBase, a database of human disease-causing protein kinase mutations

Nucleic Acids Res. 2000 Jan 1;28(1):369-71. doi: 10.1093/nar/28.1.369.


KinMutBase ( is a registry of mutations in human protein kinases related to disorders. Kinases are essential cellular signaling molecules, in which mutations can lead to diseases, including immunodeficiencies, cancers and endocrine disorders. The first release of KinMutBase contained information for protein tyrosine kinases. The current release includes also serine/threonine protein kinases, as well as an update of the tyrosine kinases. There are 251 entries altogether, representing 337 families and 621 patients. Mutations appear both in conserved hallmark residues of the kinases as well as in non-homologous sites. The KinMutBase WWW pages provide plenty of information, namely mutation statistics and display, clickable sequences with mutations and changes to restriction enzyme patterns.
