GeneDx RCV000181647 SCV000233950 pathogenic not provided 2018-08-30 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R122C pathogenic variant in the FBN1 gene has been reported in multiple individuals with Marfan syndrome or ectopia lentis (Stahl-Hallengren et al., 1994; Black et al., 1998; Loeys et al., 2001; Comeglio et al., 2002; Jin et al., 2007; Jin et al., 2008; Hung et al., 2009; Zadeh et al., 2011; Wang et al., 2013; Li et al., 2014; Castro et al., 2017). This variant has segregated with FBN1-related phenotypes in several families (Stahl-Hallengren et al., 1994; Black et al., 1998). Additionally, the R122C variant is not observed in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016; 1000 Genomes Consortium et al., 2015; Exome Variant Server).The R122C 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. This substitution occurs at a position that is conserved across species and in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Finally, the R122C variant introduces a cysteine residue within an EGF-like domain of the FBN1 gene, which may affect disulfide bonding and is predicted to alter the structure and function of the protein.
Invitae RCV001201375 SCV000544955 pathogenic Marfan syndrome; Familial thoracic aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection 2019-10-30 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces arginine with cysteine at codon 122 of the FBN1 protein (p.Arg122Cys). The arginine residue is highly conserved and there is a large physicochemical difference between arginine and cysteine. This variant is not present in population databases (rs137854467, ExAC no frequency). This variant has been reported in the literature to segregate with disease in two families (PMID: 8040326, 9452085), as well as in multiple unrelated individuals affected with ectopia lentis and/or Marfan syndrome (PMID: 17679947, 12446365, 25053872, 21932315, 22772377, 21895641, 11700157). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 16440). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function do not agree on the potential impact of this missense change (SIFT: "Deleterious"; PolyPhen-2: "Probably Damaging"; Align-GVGD: "Class C0"). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.

ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics, ARUP Laboratories RCV001000178 SCV001156669 pathogenic not specified 2018-08-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The FBN1 c.364C>T; p.Arg122Cys variant (rs137854467) has been reported in multiple families with clinical symptoms suggestive of Marfan syndrome, and is strongly associated with ectopia lentis (Black 1998, Comeglio 2002, Jin 2007, Loeys 2001, Stahl-Hallengran 1994). It is reported in ClinVar as pathogenic (Variation ID: 16440) and is absent from general population databases (1000 Genomes Project, Exome Variant Server, and Genome Aggregation Database), indicating it is not a common polymorphism. The variant changes an arginine in an EGF-like domain into a cysteine residue, which meets the revised Ghent nosology criteria of a causative Marfan syndrome variant (Loeys 2010). Based on available information, this variant is considered to be pathogenic. References: Black C et al.
