GeneDx RCV000494559 SCV000581861 likely pathogenic not provided 2015-08-16 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The P434L variant has been reported previously in an individual with a biochemical diagnosis of Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC) who also carried another missense variant in the NPC1 gene, although phase was not determined and functional studies were not performed (Fernandez-Valero et al., 2005). The P434L variant is a semi-conservative amino acid substitution, which may impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in some properties. This substitution occurs at a position that is conserved in mammals. In silico analysis is inconsistent in its predictions as to whether or not the variant is damaging to the protein structure/function. A missense variant in a nearby residue (P433L) has been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with NPC (Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Therefore, the P434L variant is a strong candidate for a pathogenic variant, however the possibility that it is a benign variant cannot be excluded.
