GeneDx RCV000413559 SCV000490651 likely pathogenic not provided 2018-10-09 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Y162C likely pathogenic variant in the MYH7 gene has been reported previously in association with cardiomyopathy (Rayment et al., 1995; Cuda et al., 1997). Additionally, another variant altering this residue (Y162H) has been reported in one individual with HCM (Meder et al., 2011). The Y162C variant 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. The Y162C variant results in a non-conservative amino acid substitution at a position that is conserved across species. Consequently, in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Furthermore, functional studies show that the Y162C variant lowers the motility activity of beta-myosin compared to wildtype protein (Cuda et al., 1997). However, despite the fact that an association between the Y162C variant in the MYH7 gene and cardiomyopathy has been described, family history information and segregation data was not provided.Therefore, this variant is a strong candidate for a pathogenic variant, however the possibility that it is a benign variant cannot be excluded.
