Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000169655 SCV000221182 likely pathogenic Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa 2013-10-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The 7557+1G>T variant in COL7A1 has not been reported in the literature or in large population studies. This variant occurs in the invariant region (+/- 1,2) of the splice consensus sequence and is predicted to cause altered splicing leading to an abnormal or absent protein. Loss of function of the COL7A1 gene is an established disease mechanism in Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica patients. It should be noted that mutations in COL7A1 gene have been associated with both autosomal recessive and dominant forms of this disease and the inheritance of each variant can only be determined based on its segregation pattern in families and molecular studies; however splicing mutations have been more frequently observed in autosomal recessive Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica (Varki 2007). If this variant were to cause skipping of exon 100, it would cause a deletion of 12 amino acids between positions 2508-2519 and would not alter the protein reading-frame. It is currently unclear how this deletion would impact the protein, though two pathogenic missense variants have previously been reported in exon 100 (Almaani 2011), suggesting that this exon is likely to have an important role in protein function. In summary, this variant is likely pathogenic, though additional studies are required to fully establish its clinical significance.
