Five of five in-silico tools predict a benign effect of the variant on protein function. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.0014 in 143226 control chromosomes, predominantly at a frequency of 0.0047 within the African or African-American subpopulation (i.e. 196/42012 alleles) in the gnomAD database (v3 genomes dataset). The observed variant frequency within African or African-American control individuals in the gnomAD database is approximately 4.7 fold of the estimated maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic variant in ATM causing Breast Cancer phenotype (0.001), strongly suggesting that the variant is a benign polymorphism found primarily in populations of African or African-American origin. In addition, this variant has been reported in 23/2559 African American women (i.e. with an allele frequency 0.0045) who are older than age 70 and cancer free (in the FLOSSIES database). c.2608A>G has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with Breast Cancer and other tumor phenotypes. These reports do not provide unequivocal conclusions about association of the variant with Breast Cancer. Co-occurrences with other pathogenic variants have been reported (BRIP1 c.484C>T (p.Arg162X), Yurgelun_2015; BRCA1 c.4065_4068delTCAA (p.Asn1355LysfsX10), in an internal LCA sample), providing supporting evidence for a benign role. To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. Eight other clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. Multiple laboratories reported the variant with conflicting assessments (i.e. benign (n=4) or VUS (n=4)). Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as benign.

Center for Genomics, Ann and Robert H.

Of note, one of these individuals also carried a loss of function variant in a different gene (Yurgelun 2015 PMID:25980754). This variant is present in 0.4 % (102/24026) of African alleles in the Genome Aggregation Database ( This variant is present in ClinVar (Variation ID:127355). Evolutionary conservation and computational predictive tools suggest that this variant may not impact the protein. In summary, data on this variant is insufficient for disease classification. Therefore, the clinical significance of this variant is uncertain.

This variant is also reported in the ClinVar database (Variation ID: 127355). It is found in the general African population with an allele frequency of 0.4% (104/24960 alleles) in the Genome Aggregation Database. The asparagine at codon 870 is moderately conserved, but computational analyses (SIFT, PolyPhen-2) predict that this variant is tolerated. Due to limited information, the clinical significance of this variant is uncertain at this time. REFERENCES Ouillette P et al.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine,Sinai Health System RCV001354304 SCV001548887 likely benign Malignant tumor of breast no assertion criteria provided clinical testing The ATM p.Asn870Asp variant was identified in 3 of 6764 proband chromosomes (frequency: 0.0004) from individuals or families with contralateral breast cancer or colorectal cancer (Bernstein 2010, Yurgelun 2015, Betge 2015). The variant was also identified in dbSNP (ID: rs61734354) as "With Uncertain significance allele", ClinVar (classified as benign by Invitae; as uncertain significance by GeneDx, Ambry Genetics, Counsyl, and Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America), and MutDB. The variant was not identified in the COGR, Cosmic, or LOVD 3.0 databases. The variant was identified in control databases in 114 of 277178 chromosomes at a frequency of 0.0004 (Genome Aggregation Database Feb 27, 2017). The variant was observed in the following populations: African in 102 of 24026 chromosomes (freq: 0.004), Latino in 8 of 34418 chromosomes (freq: 0.0002), and European in 4 of 126694 chromosomes (freq: 0.00003), while the variant was not observed in the Other, Ashkenazi Jewish, East Asian, Finnish, or South Asian populations. The p.Asn870 residue is conserved in mammals but not in more distantly related organisms and computational analyses (PolyPhen-2, SIFT, AlignGVGD, BLOSUM, MutationTaster) do not suggest a high likelihood of impact to the protein; this information is not predictive enough to rule out pathogenicity. The variant occurs outside of the splicing consensus sequence and in silico or computational prediction software programs (SpliceSiteFinder, MaxEntScan, NNSPLICE, GeneSplicer) do not predict a difference in splicing. In summary, based on the above information, the clinical significance of this variant cannot be determined with certainty at this time although we would lean towards a more benign role for this variant. This variant is classified as likely benign.
