GeneDx RCV000726925 SCV000235912 uncertain significance not provided 2015-04-30 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Asp72Val (GAT>GTT): c.215 A>T in exon 3 in the EMD gene (NM_000117.2). A variant of unknown significance has been identified in the EMD gene. The D72V variant has been reported in association with Emery -Driefuss muscular dystrophy in a gene specific database (BÂŽroud et al., 2000). It was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. The D72V variant is a non-conservative amino acid substitution, which is likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in polarity, charge, size, and/or other properties. In addition, in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. This substitution occurs at a position that is conserved in mammals. Based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether this variant is a pathogenic mutation or a rare benign variant The variant is found in EMD panel(s).
