GeneDx RCV000211945 SCV000209680 pathogenic not provided 2016-03-16 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted ATM c.742C>T at the cDNA level and p.Arg248Ter (R248X) at the protein level. The substitution creates a nonsense variant, which changes an Arginine to a premature stop codon (CGA>TGA), and is predicted to cause loss of normal protein function through either protein truncation or nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. This variant has been reported in ataxia-telangiectasia patients in the compound heterozygous state (Mitui 2005, Sasaki 1998), and in at least one breast cancer patient who also carried a BRCA2 nonsense variant (Churpek 2015). This variant is considered pathogenic.

Invitae RCV000410046 SCV000622747 pathogenic Ataxia-telangiectasia syndrome 2019-11-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change creates a premature translational stop signal (p.Arg248*) in the ATM gene. It is expected to result in an absent or disrupted protein product. This variant is present in population databases (rs730881336, ExAC 0.01%). This variant has been reported in individuals affected with ataxia telangiectasia (PMID: 9711876, 16266405), prostate cancer (PMID: 27433846) and breast cancer (PMID: 26681312, 28281021). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 181913). Loss-of-function variants in ATM are known to be pathogenic (PMID: 25614872, 23807571). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.

Human Genome Sequencing Center Clinical Lab, Baylor College of Medicine RCV000709708 SCV000839882 pathogenic Familial cancer of breast 2017-05-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This c.742C>T (p.Arg248*) variant in the ATM gene has previously been reported in two Japanese patients with ataxia telangiectasia [PMID 9711876]. Both patients were compound heterozygous for this variant and a loss of function variant [PMID 9711876]. This c.742C>T encodes for a premature stop codon in exon 7 at amino acid position 248 of the ATM protein, leading to a loss of function of the protein. This variant has been observed in one heterozygous East Asian individual in the ExAC database ( It is thus classified as a pathogenic variant.
Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000410046 SCV001363667 pathogenic Ataxia-telangiectasia syndrome 2019-02-18 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: ATM c.742C>T (p.Arg248X) results in a premature termination codon, predicted to cause a truncation of the encoded protein or absence of the protein due to nonsense mediated decay, which are commonly known mechanisms for disease. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 8.1e-06 in 245760 control chromosomes (gnomAD). c.742C>T has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with Ataxia-Telangiectasia (Micol_2011, Sasaki_1998, Mitui_2005, Ye_2018), Breast Cancer (Susswein_2015), and Prostate Cancer (Pritchard_2016). These data indicate that the variant is likely to be associated with disease. To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. Seven ClinVar submissions from clinical diagnostic laboratories (evaluation after 2014) cite the variant as likely pathogenic/pathogenic. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as pathogenic.
