ClinGen Hearing Loss Variant Curation Expert Panel RCV000576483 SCV000840510 pathogenic Pendred syndrome 2018-09-17 reviewed by expert panel curation This variant has been detected in patients with hearing loss in trans with at least 4 pathogenic or suspected-pathogenic variants (PM3_VeryStrong; PMID: 25372295, 23638949, 25468468, 24338212, 25394566, 19786220, 19017801, 27541434, 21366435, 17309986, 24007330, 24224479, 21961810, 2844304, 19509082, 15811013). The p.Thr410Met variant in SLC26A4 has been reported to segregate in an autosomal recessive pattern with hearing loss in at least 7 family members (PP1_Strong; PMID: 19017801, 9618167, 15811013). Computational prediction tools and conservation analysis suggest that the p.Thr410Met variant may impact the protein (PP3). At least one patient with a variant in this gene displayed features of EVA or Mondini malformation (PP4; PMID: 15355436, 15811013). The allele frequency of the p.Thr410Met variant in the SLC26A4 gene is 0.062% (19/30782) of South Asian chromosomes by the Genome Aggregation Database (, which is a low enough frequency to award PM2_Supporting based on the thresholds defined by the ClinGen Hearing Loss Expert Panel for autosomal recessive hearing loss (PM2_Supporting). In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for autosomal recessive Pendred syndrome based on the ACMG/AMP criteria applied, as specified by the Hearing Loss Expert Panel: PM3_VS, PP1_S, PP3, PS3_P, PM2_P, PP4.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000824770 SCV000060085 pathogenic Rare genetic deafness 2012-03-22 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Thr410Met variant in SLC26A4 has been reported in over 34 individuals with h earing loss and was not identified in 1576 control chromosomes (Arellano 2005, D ai 2009, Hutchin 2005, Wang 2007). Many of these individuals were homozygous or compound heterozygous. This variant causes the protein to be retained in the en doplasmic reticulum instead of functioning normally at the plasma membrane, thus greatly reducing its sodium-iodide efflux action (Taylor 2002). In summary, thi s variant meets our criteria to be classified as pathogenic.
GeneDx RCV000268093 SCV000329520 pathogenic not provided 2019-01-17 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The T410M variant in the SLC26A4 gene has been reported in both the homozygous and compound heterozygous state in multiple individuals with Pendred syndrome (Coyle et al., 1998; Arellano et al., 2005; Wang et al., 2007; Dai et al., 2009). T410M accounted for 4% of the SLC26A4 variants identified in a cohort of Korean patients with hearing loss and enlarged vestibular aqueduct (Lee et al., 2014). In vitro functional studies indicate this variant results in reduced or absent surface expression of the protein and impairs anion exchange activity (Lee et al., 2014; Taylor et al., 2002). The T410M variant was not observed with any significant frequency in approximately 6500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. It is a non-conservative amino acid substitution that occurs at a position that is conserved across species. In silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. We interpret T410M as a pathogenic variant.

Invitae RCV000268093 SCV000947125 pathogenic not provided 2020-10-26 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces threonine with methionine at codon 410 of the SLC26A4 protein (p.Thr410Met). The threonine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between threonine and methionine. This variant is present in population databases (rs111033220, ExAC 0.06%). This variant has been observed to segregate with clinical features of Pendred syndrome in a family (PMID: 11919333). It has also been identified in several individuals with clinical features of Pendred syndrome (PMID: 11919333, 9618167, 25468468, 24224479, 11932316). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 43498). This variant has been reported to affect SLC26A4 protein function (PMID:24007330, 11932316). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.

Sources cited for classification include the following: PMID 16283880, 15355436, 11919333, 24224479, 21961810, 11932316, 19786220 and 9618167. Classification of NM_000441.1(SLC26A4):c.1229C>T(T410M) is based on the following criteria: This is a well-established pathogenic variant in the literature that has been observed more frequently in patients with clinical diagnoses than in healthy populations. Please note: this variant was assessed in the context of healthy population screening.
Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV000576483 SCV001572470 pathogenic Pendred syndrome 2021-04-09 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: SLC26A4 c.1229C>T (p.Thr410Met) results in a non-conservative amino acid change located in the SLC26A/SulP transporter domain (IPR011547) of the encoded protein sequence. Five of five in-silico tools predict a damaging effect of the variant on protein function. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.00018 in 250840 control chromosomes. This frequency is not significantly higher than expected for a pathogenic variant in SLC26A4 causing Pendred Syndrome (0.00018 vs 0.0035), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. c.1229C>T has been widely reported in the literature in multiple individuals affected with Pendred Syndrome (example, Coyle_1998, Fugazzola_2002, Chen_2019). These data indicate that the variant is very likely to be associated with disease. To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. Multiple clinical diagnostic laboratories and one espert panel (ClinGen Hearing Loss Variant Curation Expert Panel) have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. All submitters classified the variant as pathogenic/likely pathogenic. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as pathogenic.
