GeneDx RCV000223979 SCV000149126 uncertain significance not provided 2018-12-10 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted ATM c.5821G>C at the cDNA level, p.Val1941Leu (V1941L) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Valine to a Leucine (GTT>CTT). ATM Val1941Leu has been reported in individuals with breast cancer, glioma, or a Lynch related-cancer and/or polyps undergoing multigene hereditary cancer testing (Maxwell 2015, Tung 2015, Yurgelun 2015, Zhang 2015, Hauke 2018), and on functional interrogation, demonstrated reduced ATM protein level and kinase activity (Barone 2009). However, in two large case-control studies ATM Val1941Leu was present at similar or lower frequencies in breast cancer patients compared to control subjects (Tavtigian 2009, Decker 2017). In addition, this variant was present at similar or lower frequencies in cases vs. controls in two chronic lymphocytic leukemia case-control studies (Skowronska 2012, Tiao 2017). ATM Val1941Leu was observed at an allele frequency of 0.02% (29/126,446) in individuals of European ancestry in large population cohorts (Lek 2016). This variant is not located in a known functional domain. In silico analysis, which includes protein predictors and evolutionary conservation, supports that this variant does not alter protein structure/function. Based on currently available evidence, it is unclear whether ATM Val1941Leu is a pathogenic or benign variant. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.

Invitae RCV000167876 SCV000218522 uncertain significance Ataxia-telangiectasia syndrome 2018-12-23 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces valine with leucine at codon 1941 of the ATM protein (p.Val1941Leu). The valine residue is highly conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between valine and leucine. This variant is present in population databases (rs147187700, ExAC 0.02%). This variant has been reported in individuals affected with breast cancer (PMID: 19781682, 16832357, 25503501), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (PMID: 21933854), and suspected Lynch syndrome (PMID: 25980754). However, in a large meta-analysis this variant was not associated with an increased risk of breast cancer (PMID: 19781682). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 127412). Experimental studies have shown that this missense change leads to reduced ATM kinase activity (PMID: 19431188). In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.

Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000780923 SCV000918576 uncertain significance not specified 2019-07-10 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: ATM c.5821G>C (p.Val1941Leu) results in a conservative amino acid change in the encoded protein sequence. Four of five in-silico tools predict a benign effect of the variant on protein function. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.00013 in 251056 control chromosomes, predominantly at a frequency of 0.00026 within the Non-Finnish European subpopulation in the gnomAD database. This frequency is not significantly higher than expected for a pathogenic variant in ATM causing Breast Cancer (0.00013 vs 0.001), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. However, the variant was also reported in 10 / 9884 women (i.e. with a frequency of about 0.001), who were older than 70 years of age, and never had cancer (FLOSSIES database), which might suggest a benign outcome for the variant. c.5821G>C has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with Breast Cancer (Shayeghi 1998, Renwick 2006, Maxwell 2015) , other tumor phenotypes such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), Lynch syndrome-associated cancer and/or polyps , pediatric low grade glioma (Skowronska 2011, Yurgelun 2015, Zhang 2015, Tung_2015) and also in several healthy controls (Skowronska 2011, Tiao 2017, Tavtigian_2009). These reports therefore do not provide unequivocal conclusions about association of the variant with Breast Cancer. Co-occurrence with another pathogenic variant has been reported for this variant (BRCA1 c.3607C>T, p.Arg1203X, internal sample), which further supports its role as a benign variant. Using an ATM-null lymphoblastoid cell line (LCL) transfected with the variant of interest, Barone et al demonstrated an approximately 50% decrease in protein expression (or stability) but no significant decrease in specific kinase activity (Barone 2009). Nine ClinVar submissions (evaluation after 2014) cite the variant as uncertain significance. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as uncertain significance.
