However, these predictions have yet to be confirmed by functional studies. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 8.5e-06 in 236524 control chromosomes. The available data on variant occurrences in the general population are insufficient to allow any conclusion about variant significance. c.4179G>A has been reported in the literature but these report(s) do not provide unequivocal conclusions about association of the variant with Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer. Six clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. All laboratories classified the variant as benign/likely benign. Our laboratory classified this variant as a "VUS-possibly normal" in a series of re-evaluations spanning two years (2016-2018), however, no new evidence supporting pathogenicity have been reported and at-least two other testing laboratories have classified this variant as likely benign since our original classification. Therefore, the overall evidence seems to be shifting from uncertain significance to likely benign. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as likely benign.
GeneDx RCV000605268 SCV000730795 benign not specified 2015-09-28 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is considered likely benign or benign based on one or more of the following criteria: it is a conservative change, it occurs at a poorly conserved position in the protein, it is predicted to be benign by multiple in silico algorithms, and/or has population frequency not consistent with disease.
