GeneDx RCV000160619 SCV000211217 uncertain significance not provided 2014-03-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted MSH2 c.596G>A at the cDNA level, p.Cys199Tyr (C199Y) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Cysteine to a Tyrosine (TGT>TAT). This variant was observed in an individual with a personal and family history consistent with Lynch syndrome (Ewald 2007). The International Society for Gastrointestinal Hereditary Tumours Incorporated (InSiGHT) classifies this variant as uncertain significance (Thompson 2014). MSH2 Cys199Tyr was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Since Cysteine and Tyrosine differ in polarity, charge, size or other properties, this is considered a non-conservative amino acid substitution. MSH2 Cys199Tyr occurs at a position that is well conserved across species and is located in the connector domain (Lutzen 2008). In silico analyses predict that this variant is probably damaging to protein structure and function. Based on currently available information, it is unclear whether MSH2 Cys199Tyr is pathogenic or benign. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.
