GeneDx RCV000429156 SCV000511883 likely pathogenic not provided 2016-10-03 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R511C missense variant has been reported in association with ABCA4-associated disorders (Zernant et al., 2011; Huang et al., 2015; Jiang et al., 2016). The R511C 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 R511C variant is a non-conservative amino acid substitution, which is likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in polarity, charge, size and/or other properties. This substitution occurs at a position where amino acids with similar properties to Arginine are tolerated across species. In silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Therefore, based on the currently available information, this variant is a likely pathogenic variant.
Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000779006 SCV000915447 likely pathogenic ABCA4-Related Disorders 2017-04-28 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The ABCA4 c.1531C>T (p.Arg511Cys) missense variant has been reported in four studies in which it is found in a total of six individuals with an ABCA4-related disorder. One individual with an ABCA4-related disorder of an unspecified type carried the p.Arg511Cys variant in a homozygous state (Zernant et al. 2011). Two individuals with Stargardt disease and one patient with inherited retinal dystrophy carried the p.Arg511Cys variant in a compound heterozygous state with a second variant (Jiang et al. 2016; Huang et al. 2015). One individual with Stargardt disease carried the p.Arg511Cys variant along with both a duplication and a missense variant of unclear zygosity in the ABCA4 gene (Fujinami et al. 2015). One individual with cone rod dystrophy carried the p.Arg511Cys variant with a second ABCA4 variant of unknown pathogenicity in cis and a third variant in trans (Jiang et al. 2016). The p.Arg511Cys variant was absent from 464 controls and is reported at a frequency of 0.00243 in the East Asian population of the Exome Aggregate Consortium. Based on the collective evidence, the p.Arg511Cys variant is classified as likely pathogenic for autosomal recessive ABCA4-related disorders. This variant was observed by ICSL as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population.
