GeneDx RCV000160081 SCV000210344 uncertain significance not provided 2017-06-15 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted BRCA2 c.4981T>C at the cDNA level, p.Tyr1661His (Y1661H) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Tyrosine to a Histidine (TAT>CAT). Using alternate nomenclature, this variant would be defined as BRCA2 5209T>C. This variant has not, to our knowledge, been published in the literature as pathogenic or benign. BRCA2 Tyr1661His was not observed in large population cohorts (NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, The 1000 Genomes Consortium 2015, Lek 2016). Since Tyrosine and Histidine differ in polarity, charge, size or other properties, this is considered a non-conservative amino acid substitution. BRCA2 Tyr1661His occurs at a position that is not conserved and is located in the RAD51 and POLH binding domains (Roy 2012, Buisson 2014). In silico analyses are inconsistent regarding the effect this variant may have on protein structure and function. Based on currently available information, it is unclear whether BRCA2 Tyr1661His is pathogenic or benign. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.
