ClinGen Cardiomyopathy Variant Curation Expert Panel RCV000471604 SCV000564418 pathogenic Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 2016-12-15 reviewed by expert panel curation The c.1750G>C (p.Gly584Arg) variant in MYH7 has been reported in >25 individuals with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (PS4; PMID:1552912; PMID:10567705; PMID:24093860; Partners LMM ClinVar SCV000059395.5; SHaRe consortium, PMID: 30297972). This variant segregated with disease in >5 affected individuals (PP1_Moderate; PMID:1552912; Partners LMM ClinVar SCV000059395.5). This variant was absent from large population studies (PM2; This variant lies in the head region of the protein (aa 181-937) and missense variants in this region are statistically more likely to be disease-associated (PM1; PMID:27532257). Computational prediction tools and conservation analysis suggest that this variant may impact the protein (PP3). In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in an autosomal dominant manner. MYH7-specific ACMG/AMP criteria applied (PMID:29300372): PS4; PM1; PM2; PP1_Moderate; PP3
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000471604 SCV000059395 pathogenic Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 2021-02-19 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Gly584Arg variant in MYH7 has been reported in at least 8 individuals with HCM (Watkins 1993 PMID:8250038, Nier 1999 PMID:10567705, Santos 2012 PMID: 22429680, Marsiglia 2013 PMID:24093860) and has been identified by our laboratory in >20 individuals with HCM. Furthermore, this variant segregated with disease in 5 affected members (including 1 obligate carrier) from 4 families (Watkins 1993 PMID:8250038, LMM data). It has also been identified in 0.001% (1/113768) of European chromosomes by gnomAD ( This variant lies in the head region of the protein and missense variants in this region are statistically more likely to be disease-associated (Walsh 2017 PMID:27532257). In vitro functional studies support an impact on protein function (Fujita 1998 PMID:9062359, Wang 2003 PMID:12953063) and computational prediction tools and conservation analyses are consistent with pathogenicity. Additionally, this variant was classified as pathogenic on 12/15/2016 by the ClinGen-approved Cardiomyopathy expert panel (Variation ID 14090). In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for autosomal dominant HCM. ACMG/AMP criteria applied: PS4, PP1_Moderate, PM2_supporting, PM1, PS3_Supporting, PP3.

Invitae RCV000471604 SCV000546174 pathogenic Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 2020-09-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces glycine with arginine at codon 584 of the MYH7 protein (p.Gly584Arg). The glycine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between glycine and arginine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has been reported in the literature as co-segregating with disease in families affected with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (PMID: 8250038), as well as in multiple unrelated affected individuals (PMID: 22429680, 24093860). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 14090). Experimental studies have shown that this missense change impairs actin filament movement in vitro (PMID: 12953063). A different missense substitution at this codon (p.Gly584Ser) has been determined to be pathogenic (PMID: 12974739, 23283745, 24510615, 26187847). This suggests that the glycine 584 residue is critical for MYH7 protein function and that other missense substitutions at this position may also be pathogenic. In summary, this variant is a rare missense change that has been reported to co-segregate with disease in families, and in multiple unrelated affected individuals. It has also been shown to affect protein function and it is located in a residue important for protein function. For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.

MYH7 c.1750G>C p.Gly584Arg g.23896932C>G (chr14.GRCh37) Seen in 1 pt with HCM in our center. First reviewed 4/1/2013, re-reviewed 1 oct 2014 While the variant has been seen in many cases of cardiomyopathy, we consider it likely pathogenic instead of very likely pathogenic because of the absence of a large number of controls matching the published cases (which are nearly all Portuguese) as well as the lack of strong segregation data or animal model data. In total this variant has been seen in at least 29 unrelated individuals with HCM (including one patient in our center) with weak segregation data in two families. We have seen the variant once in our center, in a Portuguese man who was diagnosed at 58 years of age with HCM, with a septum of 3.1 cm. This variant was initially reported in two families with HCM (Watkins et al 1993). In one family a haplotype block containing the variant segregated with 3 affected individuals, and in the second family it segregated with 2 affecteds. Both families were of Portuguese origin, and they had identical haplotypes thus suggesting p.Gly584Arg is a founder variant in this population. In a study on 80 Portuguese patients with HCM Santos et al (2012) observed the variant in one individual with HCM. Vieira et al (1995) appear to have assessed the prevalence of this variant in a Portuguese population. The manuscript is in Portuguese. Using google translate we were able to ascertain that they did not observe this variant in their cohort, but unfortunately it is unclear how many patients they studied or if they published controls. GeneDx shared that they have seen this variant in two other probands, one Caucasian and the other Portuguese. I also contacted the Laboratory for Molecular Medicine and they shared that they have seen it in 23 cases (2013). Unfortunately they have no segregation data nor do they have detailed ancestry data. They shared that most of the cases were listed as Caucasian without further specifics, though they did notice that many of the patients have Portuguese names. Carolyn Ho’s group included a patient with this variant in a paper on extracellular volume expansion, however it is unclear if that individual had hypertrophy or not (Ho et al 2013). In addition, that case likely overlaps with the LMM’s cases. No ancestry or segregation data was reported. Per their ClinVar submissions, LMM classifies it as likely pathogenic (SCV000059395). This is a semi conservative amino acid change with a nonpolar, neutral Glycine replaced with a polar, positively charged Arginine. In silico analysis (SIFT, PolyPhen2, mutationtaster) predicts the amino acid change to be deleterious/probably damaging to the resulting protein. The Laboratory of Molecular Medicine shared that their sarcomere-specific PolyPhen predicts the variant to be pathogenic and the lab notes that the pathogenic prediction is estimated to be correct 94% of the time (Jordan et al 2011). Additional variants at the same codon (p.Gly584Ser (Erdmann et al 2003, per ClinVar LMM classifies as likely pathogenic (SCV000059394)) and nearby codons (p.His576Arg, p.Ala583Val, p.Asp587Val) have been reported in association with cardiomyopathy (per the GeneDx report citing HGMD). Wang et al (2003) observed dramatic myofibril disarray after introducing the variant into chicken embryonic myocytes. Nier et al (1999) studied muscle fibers from a patient with p.Gly584Arg and observed that only 12% of all myosin in the sarcomeres was the variant version. However they did not observe any impact on sarcomere function. In total the variant has not been seen in ~6600 published controls and publicly available general population samples. GeneDx did not report internal control data for this variant. The variant is listed in dbSNP (rs121913626) and 1000Genomes however there is no population frequency data available. The variant is not currently listed in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project dataset, which includes variant calls on ~6500 Caucasian and African American individuals (as of October 1 2014). Santos et al (2012) did not observe the variant in 100 control individuals (origin is not listed but the study was done in Portugal).
