Ambry Genetics RCV000163237 SCV000213764 likely benign Hereditary cancer-predisposing syndrome 2014-08-05 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This alteration is classified as likely benign based on a combination of the following: population frequency, intact protein function, lack of segregation with disease, co-occurrence, RNA analysis, in silico models, amino acid conservation, lack of disease association in case-control studies, and/or the mechanism of disease or impacted region is inconsistent with a known cause of pathogenicity.
Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000123066 SCV000410742 benign Peutz-Jeghers syndrome 2018-01-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed in the ICSL laboratory as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. It had not been previously curated by ICSL or reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD: prior to June 1st, 2018), and was therefore a candidate for classification through an automated scoring system. Utilizing variant allele frequency, disease prevalence and penetrance estimates, and inheritance mode, an automated score was calculated to assess if this variant is too frequent to cause the disease. Based on the score and internal cut-off values, a variant classified as benign is not then subjected to further curation. The score for this variant resulted in a classification of benign for this disease.

However, these predictions have yet to be confirmed by functional studies. The observed variant frequency within East Asian control individuals in the gnomAD database is approximately 368 fold above the estimated maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic variant in STK11 causing Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome phenotype (6.3e-06), strongly suggesting that the variant is a benign polymorphism found primarily in populations of East Asian origin. To our knowledge, no occurrence of c.723T>C in individuals affected with Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome and no experimental evidence demonstrating its impact on protein function have been reported. Five clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 and all classified the variant as benign/likely benign. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as benign.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine,Sinai Health System RCV000123066 SCV001551900 likely benign Peutz-Jeghers syndrome no assertion criteria provided clinical testing The STK11 p.Ala241= variant was identified in 9 of 14,208 proband chromosomes (frequency: 0.0006) from individuals with breast cancer and was present in 48 of 47,462 control chromosomes (frequency: 0.001) from healthy individuals (Momozawa 2018). The variant was identified dbSNP (rs533550278) as “with other allele”, ClinVar (classified as likely benign by Color, Ambry Genetics, GeneDx and 2 other submitters and benign by Invitae) and LOVD 3.0 (observed 4x). The variant was identified in control databases in 45 of 269,908 chromosomes at a frequency of 0.0002 (Genome Aggregation Database Feb 27, 2017). The variant was observed in the following populations: Other in 1 of 6302 chromosomes (freq: 0.0002), East Asian in 44 of 18,736 chromosomes (freq: 0.002); it was not observed in the African, Latino, European, Ashkenazi Jewish, Finnish, and South Asian populations. The p.Ala241= variant is not expected to have clinical significance because it does not result in a change of amino acid and is not located in a known consensus splice site. The variant occurs at a non-highly conserved nucleotide outside of the splicing consensus sequence and in silico or computational prediction software programs (SpliceSiteFinder, MaxEntScan, NNSPLICE, GeneSplicer) do not predict a difference in splicing. In summary, based on the above information the clinical significance of this variant cannot be determined with certainty at this time although we would lean towards a more benign role for this variant. This variant is classified as likely benign.
