This variant is reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 52345) and found in the general population with an overall allele frequency of 0.007% (17/246182 alleles) in the Genome Aggregation Database. The arginine at codon 2502 is weakly conserved, and computational analyses (SIFT, PolyPhen-2) predict that this variant is tolerated. Additionally, this variant has been previously identified by our laboratory in a patient who also carries a pathogenic truncating BRCA1 variant. Based on available information, this variant is considered to be likely benign. REFERENCES Akbari MR et al. Clinical impact of unclassified variants of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.

Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV000045234 SCV000695072 likely benign not specified 2019-08-06 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: BRCA2 c.7505G>A (p.Arg2502His) results in a non-conservative amino acid change located in the helical domain (IPR015252) of the encoded protein sequence. Four of five in-silico tools predict a benign effect of the variant on protein function. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 6.4e-05 in 252472 control chromosomes, predominantly at a frequency of 0.00029 within the South Asian subpopulation in the gnomAD database. This frequency is not higher than the expected maximum for a pathogenic variant in BRCA2 causing Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer (HBOC) (0.00075), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. The variant has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with breast- or ovarian cancer (e.g. Akbari_2011, Gayther_1999, Spearman_2008, Bolognesi_2014, Cunningham_2014, Davies_2018, Kraus_2016, Momozawa_2018), but also in controls (Bolognesi_2014, Balabanski_2014). These reports do not provide unequivocal conclusions about association of the variant with Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer. Co-occurrences with other BRCA1 pathogenic variants have been reported (c.5096G>A (p.Arg1699Gln) in UMD; c.68_69delAG in an LCA internal sample, and a not specified truncating variant in a ClinVar submission), providing supporting evidence for a benign role. Two publications reported experimental evidence evaluating an impact on protein function, and demonstrated no damaging effect on splicing (Houdayer_2012), and no effect on the BRCA2/DSS1 interaction (Caleca_2019). Seven other ClinVar submissions (evaluation after 2014) classified the variant as VUS (1x), likely benign (4x) and benign (2x). Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as likely benign.
