Functional studies demonstrate reduced enzymatic activity of the G allele compared to WT. The prevalence of the variant in affected individuals (homozygous) is increased compared with the prevalence in controls and there is familial co-segregation with disease (Bwayo et al. 2013; Manjurano et al. 2012; Maiga et al. 2014; Shah et al. 2014; Pisani et al. 2012; Vulliamy et al. 1988; Odievre et al. 2011). Although the frequency of this variant in the African population within ExAC ( is high it is consistent with observed and expected based on disease incidence (11.34%). Computational algorithms predict the variant has a damaging or deleterious effect. This variant is has been classified as pathogenic by multiple reputable clinical testing laboratories (Emory, Division of Human Genetics at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia). In summary, this variant c.202G>A (p.Val68Met) meets our criteria for a Pathogenic classification. We have confirmed this finding in our laboratory using Sanger sequencing.

The A- haplotype results in 10-23% of normal G6PD activity and causes acute hemolytic anemia triggered by infections, certain drugs, and fava beans (Vulliamy et al., 1988; Beutler et al., 1989; Shah et al., 2014).

Invitae RCV000079404 SCV000647800 pathogenic Anemia, nonspherocytic hemolytic, due to G6PD deficiency 2018-06-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces valine with methionine at codon 68 of the G6PD protein (p.Val68Met). The valine residue is moderately conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between valine and methionine. This variant is present in population databases (rs1050828, ExAC 11%). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 37123).  This variant is also known as the Asashi variant or p.Val98Met in the literature. This variant frequently co-occurs with the c.376A>G (p.Asn126Asp) variant (rs1050829) in cis (on the same chromosome), which is known as the G6PD A- haplotype c.[202G>A; 376A>G] . The G6PD A- haplotype is the most prevalent G6PD deficiency variant in African populations which is present at 0.2% (PMID: 1303173, 24505519, 2572288, 4359638). ClinVar contains an entry for the G6PD A- haplotype (Variation ID: 10361). This variant has been reported to co-occur with another G6PD variant independent of the A- haplotype in a Japanese family affected with G6PD deficiency (PMID: 11852882). It has also been identified as homozygous independent of the A- haplotype in individuals suspected with G6PD deficiency (PMID: 23006493). While this variant alone has been shown to only mildly affect enzyme activity, the c.[202G>A; 376A>G] changes of the G6PD A- haplotype have been reported to act synergistically to cause dramatic reduction of the stability and enzymatic activity of the G6PD protein (PMID: 3393536, 1303173, 10734064, 6015571, 2836867, 16356170). For these reasons, this variant on the c.[202G>A; 376A>G] haplotype has been classified as Pathogenic.

This var iant has also been identified in 11% (955/8415) of African chromosomes by the Ex ome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC,; dbSNP rs105082 8). The variant's high frequency is consistent with the prevalence of G6PD defic iency in African populations and is thought to be a result of a partial protecti on against malaria (Manjurano 2012). The p.Val98Met variant is most frequently f ound in association with the common p.Asn156Asp allele. This combination indicat es the G6PD A- allele, which is a class III variant with a moderate level of def iciency (10-60% activity). In summary, the p.Val98Met meets criteria to be class ified as pathogenic for G6PD deficiency in an X-linked manner.
