Invitae RCV001377120 SCV001574357 likely pathogenic not provided 2020-06-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces glycine with arginine at codon 2674 of the COL7A1 protein (p.Gly2674Arg). The glycine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between glycine and arginine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has been observed in individual(s) with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (PMID: 8644729, 8900535). In at least one individual the data is consistent with the variant being in trans (on the opposite chromosome) from a pathogenic variant. Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function are either unavailable or do not agree on the potential impact of this missense change (SIFT: Deleterious; PolyPhen-2: Probably Damaging; Align-GVGD: Class C0). Glycine residues within the Gly-Xaa-Yaa repeats of the triple helix domain are required for the structure and stability of fibrillar collagens (PMID: 7695699, 8218237, 19344236), and variants at these glycine residues in COL7A1 are more frequently observed in individuals with disease than in the general population (PMID: 22058051). However, the clinical significance of this observation remains uncertain since only a limited number of affected individuals have been described to date. This variant disrupts the p.Gly2674 amino acid residue in COL7A1. Other variant(s) that disrupt this residue have been observed in individuals with COL7A1-related conditions (PMID: 10504458), which suggests that this may be a clinically significant amino acid residue. In summary, the currently available evidence indicates that the variant is pathogenic, but additional data are needed to prove that conclusively. Therefore, this variant has been classified as Likely Pathogenic.
