GeneDx RCV000212616 SCV000170346 benign not specified 2014-02-26 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.

However, these predictions have yet to be confirmed by functional studies. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.00032 in 277216 control chromosomes, predominantly at a frequency of 0.00067 within the Non-Finnish European subpopulation in the gnomAD database. The observed variant frequency within Non-Finnish European control individuals in the gnomAD database is approximately 1.18 fold of the estimated maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic variant in MSH2 causing Lynch Syndrome phenotype (0.00057), strongly suggesting that the variant is a benign polymorphism found primarily in populations of Non-Finnish European origin. c.2154A>G has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with Lynch Syndrome (Mangold_2005, Renkonen_2003). These report(s) do not provide unequivocal conclusions about association of the variant with Lynch Syndrome. Additonally, one publication reports the variant to co-occur with a pathogenic variant, further evidence for the benign nature of this variant (Mangold_2005). To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. Three clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. All laboratories classified the variant as benign/likely benign. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as benign.

Illumina Laboratory Services,Illumina RCV000986682 SCV001300495 uncertain significance Lynch syndrome 1 2018-01-12 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed in the ICSL laboratory as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. It had not been previously curated by ICSL or reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD: prior to June 1st, 2018), and was therefore a candidate for classification through an automated scoring system. Utilizing variant allele frequency, disease prevalence and penetrance estimates, and inheritance mode, an automated score was calculated to assess if this variant is too frequent to cause the disease. Based on the score, this variant could not be ruled out of causing disease and therefore its association with disease required further investigation. A literature search was performed for the gene, cDNA change, and amino acid change (if applicable). No publications were found based on this search. This variant was therefore classified as a variant of unknown significance for this disease.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine,Sinai Health System RCV000679304 SCV001551622 likely benign not provided no assertion criteria provided clinical testing The MSH2 p.Gln718= variant was identified in 2 of 3494 proband chromosomes (frequency: 0.0006) from individuals or families with HNPCC (Mangold 2005, Renkonen 2003). The variant was also identified in dbSNP (ID: rs63750810) as "With other allele”, ClinVar (classified as benign by Invitae, GeneDx, and two other submitters; and as likely benign by InSiGHT expert panel, Prevention Genetics and Ambry Genetics), and UMD-LSDB (1x as neutral). The variant was identified in control databases in 90 of 277216 chromosomes at a frequency of 0.0003 increasing the likelihood this could be a low frequency benign variant (Genome Aggregation Database Feb 27, 2017). The variant was observed in the following populations: Other in 1 of 6466 chromosomes (freq: 0.0002), Latino in 1 of 34420 chromosomes (freq: 0.00003), European in 85 of 126710 chromosomes (freq: 0.0007), Ashkenazi Jewish in 2 of 10152 chromosomes (freq: 0.0002), and East Asian in 1 of 18868 chromosomes (freq: 0.00005), while the variant was not observed in the African, Finnish, or South Asian populations. This variant was identified in a patient with an unspecified co-occurring, pathogenic variant (Mangold 2015). The p.Gln718= variant is not expected to have clinical significance because it does not result in a change of amino acid and is not located in a known consensus splice site. However, 1 of 4 in silico or computational prediction software programs (SpliceSiteFinder, MaxEntScan, NNSPLICE, GeneSplicer) predicts a greater than 10% difference in splicing. In summary, based on the above information, the clinical significance of this variant cannot be determined with certainty at this time although we would lean towards a more benign role for this variant. This variant is classified as likely benign.
