Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000325981 SCV000428142 benign Alport syndrome 2018-01-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed in the ICSL laboratory as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. It had not been previously curated by ICSL or reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD: prior to June 1st, 2018), and was therefore a candidate for classification through an automated scoring system. Utilizing variant allele frequency, disease prevalence and penetrance estimates, and inheritance mode, an automated score was calculated to assess if this variant is too frequent to cause the disease. Based on the score and internal cut-off values, a variant classified as benign is not then subjected to further curation. The score for this variant resulted in a classification of benign for this disease.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000246764 SCV000711866 benign not specified 2016-03-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing c.88-4C>T in intron 1 of COL4A3: This variant is not expected to have clinical s ignificance because it is not located within the splice consensus sequence and h as been identified in 11.92% (1380/11576) of Latino chromosomes by the Exome Agg regation Consortium (ExAC, http://exac.broadinstitute.org; dbSNP rs148393022).
GeneDx RCV000246764 SCV000717817 benign not specified 2017-09-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is considered likely benign or benign based on one or more of the following criteria: it is a conservative change, it occurs at a poorly conserved position in the protein, it is predicted to be benign by multiple in silico algorithms, and/or has population frequency not consistent with disease.
Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000246764 SCV000917262 benign not specified 2018-10-29 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: COL4A3 c.88-4C>T alters a non-conserved nucleotide located close to a canonical splice site and therefore could affect mRNA splicing, leading to a significantly altered protein sequence. 4/4 computational tools predict no significant impact on normal splicing. However, these predictions have yet to be confirmed by functional studies. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.016 in 277078 control chromosomes, predominantly at a frequency of 0.11 within the Latino subpopulation in the gnomAD database, including 235 homozygotes. The observed variant frequency within Latino control individuals in the gnomAD database is approximately 54-fold of the estimated maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic variant in COL4A3 causing autosomal recessive Alport Syndrome (0.002), strongly suggesting that the variant is a benign polymorphism found primarily in populations of Latino origin. To our knowledge, no occurrence of c.88-4C>T in individuals affected with autosomal recessive Alport Syndrome and no experimental evidence demonstrating its impact on protein function have been reported. Four clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. All laboratories classified the variant as benign (3x) /likely benign (1x). Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as benign.
