GeneDx RCV000255904 SCV000322079 pathogenic not provided 2016-08-09 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.290_292delCCT variant in the KRT17 gene has been reported previously in a patient with pachyonychia congenita (Terrinoni et al., 2001). Additionally, the c.287_298del12 variant in the KRT17 gene, which encompasses the c._290_292delCCT region, has been reported in a patient with pachyonychia congenita (Wilson et al., 2011). The c.290_292delCCT variant was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project. The c.290_292delCCT variant causes an in-frame deletion of one amino acid, denoted p.S97del. This deletion occurs within a known mutational hotspot region (helix initiation motif) that is highly conserved across all species and among all members of the keratin family. It is well established that keratin gene mutations affecting the residues at the ends of the central rod domains of the keratin proteins (helix initiation and termination motifs) interfere with proper keratin intermediate filament assembly and function, resulting in hyperkeratosis (Chamcheu et al., 2011). Therefore, we consider c.290_292delCCT to be pathogenic.
