Though the variant is located at an exon-intron junction, 5/5 computational tools predict no significant impact on normal splicing. These predictions have been confirmed by functional studies, where full-length mRNA containing the mutation c.1214G>A was detected (Jin 1992, Karageorgos 2007), predicted to result in a protein with the missense change p.C405Y. Three of five in-silico tools predict a damaging effect of the variant on protein function. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 2e-05 in 246184 control chromosomes. This frequency is lower than expected for a pathogenic variant in ARSB causing Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI (Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome) (2e-05 vs 0.0022), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. The variant, c.1214G>A has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI (Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome) presenting with a slowly progressing, milder disease phenotype (Jin 1992, Karageorgos 2007). These data indicate that the variant is likely to be associated with disease. These publications also reported experimental evidence evaluating an impact on protein function. The most pronounced variant effect results in <10% of normal activity (Jin 1992, Karageorgos 2007). One clinical diagnostic laboratory has submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation, and classified the variant as pathogenic. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as pathogenic.
