Invitae RCV000234496 SCV000283308 uncertain significance Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome 2018-06-25 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change inserts 3 nucleotides in exon 9 of the BRCA2 mRNA (c.714_716dupAAG). This leads to the insertion of 1 amino acid residue in the BRCA2 protein (p.Glu238_Ser239insArg) but otherwise preserves the integrity of the reading frame. This variant is not present in population databases (rs587778130, ExAC no frequency). This variant has been reported in an individual affected with colorectal cancer, who had been tested for Lynch syndrome (PMID: 28195393). ClinVar contains and entry for this variant (Variation ID: 126202). Experimental studies and prediction algorithms are not available for this variant, and the functional significance of the inserted amino acid is currently unknown. In summary, this is a rare in-frame duplication of a single amino acid with uncertain impact on protein function. It has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
GeneDx RCV000586365 SCV000568995 uncertain significance not provided 2018-09-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This in-frame duplication of 3 nucleotides in BRCA2 is denoted c.714_716dupAAG at the cDNA level and p.Glu238_Ser239insArg (E238_S239insR) at the protein level. Using alternate nomenclature, this variant would be defined as BRCA2 713_714insAAG or 942_944dupAAG. The normal sequence, with the bases that are duplicated in brackets, is ATGA[dupAAG]TCTG. This variant has been observed in an individual with familial colorectal cancer (Hansen 2017). This variant was also identified in 1/331 healthy European individuals undergoing whole genome sequencing (Bodian 2014). Of note, the participants in this study were younger than 50 years old thus the unaffected status of this individual may not be significant. This variant was not observed at a significant allele frequency in large population cohorts (Lek 2016). This insertion of a single Arginine amino acid is not located in a known functional domain. Since in-frame duplications may or may not inhibit proper protein functioning, the clinical significance of this finding remains unclear at this time and we consider BRCA2 Glu238_Ser239insArg to be a variant of uncertain significance.

Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000586365 SCV000695042 uncertain significance not provided 2016-08-08 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: The BRCA2 c.714_716dupAAG (p.Glu238_Ser239insArg) variant causes an in-frame insertion with 5/5 in silico tools predicing no significant affect on splicing, although these predictions have yet to be functionally assessed. The variant of interest was not observed in controls (ExAC, 1000 Gs, or ESP) and has been reported in affected individuals via publications. Multiple reputable databases/clinical laboratories have cited the variant as "uncertain significance." Therefore, the variant of interest has been classified as a "Variant of Uncertain Significance (VUS)," until additional information becomes available.
