Neuberg Centre For Genomic Medicine, NCGM RCV003336655 SCV004100374 likely pathogenic Alkaptonuria criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The splice donor variant c.87+1G>A in HGD (NM_000187.4) has not been reported previously as a pathogenic variant nor as a benign variant, to our knowledge. The c.87+1G>A variant is novel (not in any individuals) in gnomAD Exomes and is novel (not in any individuals) in 1000 Genomes. This variant affects an invariant splice nucleotide and hence is predicted to cause protein truncation. For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Likely Pathogenic.
Invitae RCV003336655 SCV004293143 pathogenic Alkaptonuria 2023-07-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic. This sequence change affects a donor splice site in intron 2 of the HGD gene. It is expected to disrupt RNA splicing. Variants that disrupt the donor or acceptor splice site typically lead to a loss of protein function (PMID: 16199547), and loss-of-function variants in HGD are known to be pathogenic (PMID: 12501223, 19862842). This variant is not present in population databases (gnomAD no frequency). Disruption of this splice site has been observed in individual(s) with Alkaptonuria (PMID: 24575791). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of sequence changes on RNA splicing suggest that this variant may disrupt the consensus splice site.
