Breda Genetics srl RCV001293855 SCV001482514 uncertain significance COL7A1-related epidermolysis bullosa 2020-12-19 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The variant c.4678G>A (p.Gly1560Arg) in the COL7A1 gene has not been reported in dbSNP, 1000 Genomes Project, gnomAD or ClinVar. The nucleotide position is conserved across 35 mammalian species (GERP RS: 5.11). In silico analysis indicates that the variant might be damaging. At three amino acid position upstream, a pathogenic mutation, c.4670G>A (p.Gly1557Glu), has been reported in ClinVar for COL7A1-related disorders (Variation ID: 379307). Of note, glycine substitution variants in the triple helical domain (Gly-X-Y; especially in exons 73, 74, and 75) predominate (>75%) in the dominant forms of COL7A1-related epidermolysis bullosa. Glycine substitutions, as well as other amino acid substitutions and splice junction variants outside of this region, may also be found in dominant epidermolysis bullosa; often, however, inheritance pattern cannot be predicted without determination of parental phenotype and corresponding genotype. Based on ACMG variant interpretation guidelines, we classify this variant as uncertain. However, on the basis of the aforementioned evidence, there is a given likelihood that the variant may actually be pathogenic, even if we cannot exclude that it is a rare benign variant.
