GeneDx RCV000220011 SCV000713874 benign not specified 2018-02-06 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.
Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000321130 SCV000445938 likely benign Waardenburg syndrome 2016-06-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing
Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000378135 SCV000445939 likely benign Tietz syndrome 2016-06-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing
Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000587748 SCV000696085 benign not provided 2016-03-04 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: MITF c.1245G>A affects a non-conserved nucleotide, resulting in a synonymous change. 4/5 programs in Alamut predict that this variant does not affect normal splicing. ESEfinder predicts changes of binding motifs for RNA splicing enhancers. This variant was found in 323/120562 control chromosomes at a frequency of 0.0026791, predominalty observed in African subpopulation in ExAC with MAF of 0.031 with 8 homozygotes. These frequencies significantly exceed the maximal expected frequency of a pathogenic MITF allele (0.0000125), suggesting this variant is benign. This variant has not, to our knowledge, been reported in affected individuals via publications or clinical laboratories; nor evaluated for functional impact by in vivo/vitro studies. Taken together, this variant was classified as Benign.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000220011 SCV000269240 benign not specified 2014-11-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Thr516Thr in exon 10 of MITF: This variant is not expected to have clinical sign ificance because it does not alter an amino acid residue and is not located with in the splice consensus sequence. It has been identified in 2.7% (120/4406) of A frican American chromosomes from a broad population by the NHLBI Exome Sequencin g Project (; dbSNP rs36118030).
