GeneDx RCV000483860 SCV000571857 uncertain significance not provided 2016-09-30 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted MLH1 c.2242G>A at the cDNA level, p.Asp748Asn (D748N) at the protein level, and results in the change of an Aspartic Acid to an Asparagine (GAT>AAT). MLH1 Asp748Asn has not, to our knowledge, been published in the literature as a germline variant; however, it has been reported as a somatic variant in an esophageal carcinoma according to the Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer (COSMIC) database. MLH1 Asp748Asn was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, suggesting it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Since Aspartic Acid and Asparagine differ in some properties, this is considered a semi-conservative amino acid substitution. MLH1 Asp748Asn occurs at a position that is conserved across species and is located within the CTH motif (Pang 1997). In silico analyses are inconsistent regarding the effect this variant may have on protein structure and function. Based on currently available evidence, it is unclear whether MLH1 Asp748Asn is a pathogenic or benign variant. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.
