GeneDx RCV000219506 SCV000279533 uncertain significance not provided 2018-08-29 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted MLH1 c.157G>A at the cDNA level, p.Glu53Lys (E53K) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Glutamic Acid to a Lysine (GAG>AAG). This variant has not, to our knowledge, been published in the literature as a pathogenic or benign germline variant. MLH1 Glu53Lys was not observed in large population cohorts (Lek 2016). This variant is located in the N-terminal ATPase domain (Andersen 2012). In silico analysis, which includes protein predictors and evolutionary conservation, supports that this variant does not alter protein structure/function. Based on currently available evidence, it is unclear whether MLH1 Glu53Lys is a pathogenic or benign variant. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.

Invitae RCV000701302 SCV000830095 uncertain significance Hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer 2018-08-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces glutamic acid with lysine at codon 53 of the MLH1 protein (p.Glu53Lys). The glutamic acid residue is weakly conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between glutamic acid and lysine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with MLH1-related disease. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 234586). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function do not agree on the potential impact of this missense change (SIFT: "Tolerated"; PolyPhen-2: "Possibly Damaging"; Align-GVGD: "Class C0"). In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
