GeneDx RCV000486429 SCV000566116 uncertain significance not provided 2016-05-09 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted BRCA2 c.2660A>G at the cDNA level, p.Glu887Gly (E887G) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Glutamic Acid to a Glycine (GAG>GGG). Using alternate nomenclature, this variant would be defined as BRCA2 2888A>G. This variant has not, to our knowledge, been published in the literature as pathogenic or benign. BRCA2 Glu887Gly was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, suggesting it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Since Glutamic Acid and Glycine differ in polarity, charge, size or other properties, this is considered a non-conservative amino acid substitution. BRCA2 Glu887Gly occurs at a position that is not conserved and is not located in a known functional domain. In silico analyses predict that this variant is unlikely to alter protein structure or function. Based on currently available evidence, it is unclear whether BRCA2 Glu887Gly is a pathogenic or benign variant. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.
Invitae RCV000637382 SCV000758838 uncertain significance Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome 2017-09-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces glutamic acid with glycine at codon 887 of the BRCA2 protein (p.Glu887Gly). The glutamic acid residue is moderately conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between glutamic acid and glycine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with BRCA2-related disease. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 141792). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function output the following: SIFT: "Deleterious"; PolyPhen-2: "Possibly Damaging"; Align-GVGD: "Class C0". The glycine amino acid residue is found in multiple mammalian species, suggesting that this missense change does not adversely affect protein function. These predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies and their clinical significance is uncertain. 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.
