Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000035143 SCV000058784 likely pathogenic Marfan syndrome 2013-07-18 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Cys830Gly variant has not been reported in the literature nor previously ide ntified by our laboratory. Additionally, the variant was not present in >10,000 control chromosomes by the Exome Sequencing Project in a broad population. Cyst eine (Cys) at position 830 is highly conserved across evolutionarily distant spe cies. Each EFG-like protein domain in the FBN1 gene contains 6 highly conserved cysteine residues. These 6 residues create three disulfide bonds which are str ucturally and functionally important to the protein and changes to these cystein es are often seen in individuals with Marfan syndrome of variable severity (Schr ijver 1999). Although this exact change has not been reported, it is likely tha t this variant will impact the protein because it affects a cysteine residue in a functionally important domain of FBN1. In addition, computational tools (Alig nGVGD, SIFT, PolyPhen-2) predict that this variant will impact the protein; howe ver, the accuracy of these tools have not been validated by our laboratory. Bas ed on the fact that cysteine substitutions are often pathogenic in FBN1, this va riant is likely to be pathogenic; however, additional information such as segreg ation data or functional analyses would help confirm pathogenicity.
