Invitae RCV000456613 SCV000551182 uncertain significance Lynch syndrome 2016-09-06 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces arginine with cysteine at codon 901 of the MSH6 protein (p.Arg901Cys). The arginine residue is moderately conserved and there is a large physicochemical difference between arginine and cysteine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency) and has not been reported in the literature in individuals with a MSH6-related disease. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 186538). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function output the following: (SIFT: "Deleterious"; PolyPhen-2: "Benign"; Align-GVGD: "Class C15"). The cysteine amino acid residue is also found in multiple mammalian species, suggesting that this missense change does not adversely affect protein function. These predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies. In summary, this variant is a rare missense change that is not predicted to affect protein function. There is no indication that it causes disease, but the available evidence is currently insufficient to prove that conclusively. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
