Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000150749 SCV000198199 likely benign not specified 2017-08-06 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Ser126Gly variant in GLA has been reported in a 12-year-old male with Fabr y disease, 1 adult female with stroke who had normal alpha-galactosidase levels, 1 female with unspecified clinical information, 1 female toddler with LVNC and arthrogryposis, 1 male toddler with neonatal onset DCM, and 2 adult females with HCM (Branton 2012, De Brabander 2013, Pasqualim 2014, LMM data). It has also be en identified in 0.07% (66/90653) of European chromosomes, including 23 hemizygo tes, in the gnomAD database (; dbSNP rs149391489 ). Functional studies indicate that the p.Ser126Gly variant may reduce GLA enzym e function by 50%, but the clinical threshold and impact are not well characteri zed (Lukas 2013). A predictive model developed to determine the pathogenicity of variants in the GLA gene suggests that the p.Ser126Gly variant may not be damag ing (Riera 2015), though this information is not predictive enough to rule out p athogenicity. In summary, while the clinical significance of the p.Ser126Gly var iant is not conclusive, given the population frequency, presence of hemizygotes, inconsistency in phenotype in cases, and residual enzyme activity in functional studies, this variant is likely benign.
GeneDx RCV000150749 SCV000207807 likely benign not specified 2018-02-09 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is considered likely benign or benign based on one or more of the following criteria: it is a conservative change, it occurs at a poorly conserved position in the protein, it is predicted to be benign by multiple in silico algorithms, and/or has population frequency not consistent with disease.

This variant was found in 71/200453 control chromosomes, including 23 hemizygous males, at a frequency of 0.0003542 in the large control database gnomAD. Other frequently reported GLA mutations (e.g., p.Ala143Pro, Arg112Cys) are not found in gnomAD, suggesting common mutations are not found at a high frequency in the general population. The variant has been identified in numerous patients reported in the literature without evidence for pathogenicity. At least one family study found a lack of cosegregation of the variant with disease, as the variant was identified in several unaffected family members, one of whom was a male well beyond the typical age of symptom onset (De Brabander_2013). In addition, a functional study found that GLA enzyme activity was reduced by ~50% in vitro, but also found that the lyso-Gb3 biomarker that is typically increased in Fabry patients was at normal levels in patient samples with the variant (Lukas_2013). Another in vitro enzyme activity study showed that the variant retained 83% of WT activity levels (Benjamin_2016). Multiple clinical diagnostic laboratories/reputable databases have classified this variant with differing interpretations, including uncertain significance (3x in ClinVar) and likely benign (1x in ClinVar). Taken together, this variant is classified as likely benign.

Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000203179 SCV001327855 benign Fabry disease 2017-11-29 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. A literature search was performed for the gene, cDNA change, and amino acid change (where applicable). Publications were found based on this search. The evidence from the literature, in combination with allele frequency data from public databases where available, was sufficient to rule this variant out of causing disease. Therefore, this variant is classified as benign.

This variant has also been reported in ClinVar as likely benign by the Laboratory for Molecular Medicine (Partners Healthcare), GeneDx, and Ambry Genetics and as a VUS by Division of Genomic Diagnostics (The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) and Invitae (Variation ID: 163547). In vitro functional studies provide some evidence that the p.Ser126Gly variant may not impact protein function (PMID: 23935525, 11889412, 28646478). However, these types of assays may not accurately represent biological function. Computational prediction tools and conservation analyses do not provide strong support for or against an impact to the protein. In summary, while the clinical significance of the p.Ser126Gly variant is uncertain, these data suggest that it is more likely to be benign. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: BS1_supporting, BS3_supporting, PP1 (Richards 2015).
