Invitae RCV000555633 SCV000641092 pathogenic Dystonia 5; GTP cyclohydrolase I deficiency 2019-07-05 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change affects a donor splice site in intron 4 of the GCH1 gene. It is expected to disrupt RNA splicing and likely results in an absent or disrupted protein product. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). Disruption of this splice site has been observed in several individuals affected with dopa-responsive dystonia (PMID: 11113234, 15753436, Invitae). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 465762). Donor and acceptor splice site variants typically lead to a loss of protein function (PMID: 16199547), and loss-of-function variants in GCH1 are known to be pathogenic (PMID: 19491146). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
