GeneDx RCV000392114 SCV000329141 likely pathogenic not provided 2018-11-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted BRCA2 c.8350C>T at the cDNA level, p.Arg2784Trp (R2784W) at the protein level, and results in the change of an Arginine to a Tryptophan (CGG>TGG). Using alternate nomenclature, this variant would be defined as BRCA2 8578C>T. This variant has been identified in individuals with a personal and/or family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer (van der Hout 2006, Gomez Garcia 2009, Brandao 2011). While BRCA2 Arg2784Trp did not induce centrosome amplification, this variant displayed reduced homologous recombination repair activity in multiple homology-directed DNA break repair assays, which have been shown to have high sensitivity and specificity for determining pathogenicity of BRCA2 missense variants in the DNA-binding domain (Farrugia 2008, Guidugli 2013, Mesman 2018). In addition, a multifactorial analysis combining in silico and functional data classified this variant as pathogenic (Guidugli 2018). BRCA2 Arg2784Trp was not observed at a significant allele frequency in large population cohorts (Lek 2016). Since Arginine and Tryptophan differ in polarity, charge, size or other properties, this is considered a non-conservative amino acid substitution. BRCA2 Arg2784Trp is located within the DSS1 contacting residues of the DNA binding domain (Yang 2002). In silico analysis, which includes protein predictors and evolutionary conservation, supports that this variant does not alter protein structure/function. Based on the currently available evidence, we consider BRCA2 Arg2784Trp to be a likely pathogenic variant.
Invitae RCV000045487 SCV000073500 uncertain significance Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome 2018-11-08 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces arginine with tryptophan at codon 2784 of the BRCA2 protein (p.Arg2784Trp). The arginine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between arginine and tryptophan. This variant is present in population databases (rs80359075, ExAC <0.01%). This variant has been reported in individuals affected with breast and/or ovarian cancer (PMID: 16683254, 27616075). This variant has been reported in individuals in the Leiden Open-source Variation Database (PMID: 21520333). However, in one of those individuals a likely pathogenic allele was also identified in BRCA2, which suggests that this c.8350C>T variant was not the primary cause of disease. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 38155). Experimental studies have shown that this missense change disrupts BRCA2 homology-directed DNA break repair activity, but it has not been shown to affect centrosome amplification (PMID: 18451181, 23108138, 29884841). In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
