Invitae RCV000457193 SCV000548296 uncertain significance Lynch syndrome 2016-10-12 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces methionine with valine at codon 261 of the MSH2 protein (p.Met261Val). The methionine residue is moderately conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between methionine and valine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has been reported in an individual affected with non-medullary thyroid cancer (FNMTC) (PMID: 26530882). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function (SIFT, PolyPhen-2, Align-GVGD) all suggest that this variant is likely to be tolerated, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies. In summary, this variant is a rare missense change that is not predicted to affect protein function. While it is absent from the population and reported in an affected individual, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine its role in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
