Variant allele produces r.7008_7435del, r.7008_7017del, and r.7008_7253del transcripts (encoding predicted non-functional proteins).

GeneDx RCV000235662 SCV000293482 pathogenic not provided 2018-01-19 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted BRCA2 c.7008-2A>T or IVS13-2A>T and consists of an A>T nucleotide substitution at the -2 position of intron 13 of the BRCA2 gene. Using alternate nomenclature, this variant would be defined as BRCA2 7236-2A>T. This variant destroys a canonical splice acceptor site and is predicted to cause abnormal gene splicing, leading to either an abnormal message that is subject to nonsense-mediated mRNA decay or to an abnormal protein product. This variant has been published, in both RT-PCR analyses of RNA and a PAXgene assay, to result in aberrant splicing (Pensabene 2009, Colombo 2009, Colombo 2013, Houdayer 2012). Based on the current evidence, we consider this variant to be pathogenic. BRCA2 c.631G>A and BRCA2 c.7008-2A>T have been published to co-occur in several probands with histories of breast, ovarian, and/or pancreatic cancer, absent of Fanconi Anemia, and are likely in cis (Pensabene 2009, Colombo 2009, Lowery 2011, Gaildrat 2012). Both of these variants are predicted to cause aberrant splicing and result in an out of frame deletion of an exon and either premature protein truncation or nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Therefore, this allele, which likely carries both variants in cis is considered pathogenic. Of note, as these two variants are likely in cis, we would not expected this individual to have Fanconi Anemia.
Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000504523 SCV000695025 pathogenic Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome 2016-07-15 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: The BRCA2 c.7008-2A>T variant is located at a conserved position, known to affect splicing, with 5/5 splice prediction tools predicting a significant impact on splicing, which is further supported by multiple functional studies. A functional study, Colombo_2009, indicates the variant tocause a "leaky" effect on splicing, allowing the expression from the mutant allele of a transcript lacking both exons 7 and 14 (delta7, delta14) and a transcript lacking exon 7 only (delta7). The variant of interest was not observed in controls (ExAC, 1000 Gs or ESP). Multiple publications cite the variant in affected individuals, predominantly, to co-occur with another pathogenic BRCA2 variant, c.631G>A. However, it remains unclear whether these variants were consistently observed in cis or trans. Multiple reputable databases/clinical laboratories cite the variant as "pathogenic." Therefore, taking all available lines of evidence into consideration, the variant of interest has been classified as Pathogenic.
