Invitae RCV000299521 SCV001111446 uncertain significance not provided 2024-01-18 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces proline, which is neutral and non-polar, with glutamine, which is neutral and polar, at codon 229 of the UGT1A1 protein (p.Pro229Gln). This variant is present in population databases (rs35350960, gnomAD 2.0%), and has an allele count higher than expected for a pathogenic variant. This variant has been observed in individual(s) with Gilbert disease (PMID: 7715297, 8528206, 14616765). This variant is frequently observed to be in cis with the c.-41_-40dup (aka UGT1A1*28 or (TA)7) variant (PMID: 11316168, 19325249, 15304120) This variant is also known as UGT1A1*27. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 12274). Advanced modeling of protein sequence and biophysical properties (such as structural, functional, and spatial information, amino acid conservation, physicochemical variation, residue mobility, and thermodynamic stability) performed at Invitae indicates that this missense variant is not expected to disrupt UGT1A1 protein function with a negative predictive value of 80%. Experimental studies have shown that this missense change affects UGT1A1 function (PMID: 8528206, 18004206). In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics, ARUP Laboratories RCV000299521 SCV001156826 pathogenic not provided 2023-10-26 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The UGT1A1 c.686C>A, p.Pro229Gln variant (rs35350960; ClinVar Variation ID: 12274), also known as the UGT1A1*27 allele (Mackenzie 1997), is reported in the literature in individuals of East Asian descent affected with Gilbert syndrome, almost always with one or two copies of the pathogenic-mild UGT1A1 *28 promoter variant (Huang 2000, Koiwai 1995, Maruo 2003, Sai 2004, Sun 2017). Functional analyses of the p.Pro229Gln variant protein showed markedly reduced enzyme activity (Koiwai 1995, Udomuksorn 2007). Individuals heterozygous for the UGT1A1*27 allele may also be at increased risk for drug toxicity when treated with irinotecan (Ando 2000, Teh 2012). This variant is found predominantly in the East Asian population with an overall allele frequency of 1.9% (389/19954 alleles, including three homozygotes) in the Genome Aggregation Database. The proline at codon 229 is highly conserved, but computational analyses are uncertain whether this variant is neutral or deleterious (REVEL: 0.32). Based on available information, this variant is considered to be mildly pathogenic for Gilbert syndrome with reduced penetrance. References: Ando Y et al.

Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Mass General Brigham Personalized Medicine RCV000147905 SCV001653054 uncertain significance not specified 2020-06-19 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Pro229Gln variant in UGT1A1 has been reported in the heterogygous and compound heterozygous state in numerous individuals with Gilbert syndrome or Crigler-Najjar syndrome type II , however, most of them were also homozygous for other pathogenic variants in the gene. This variant has also been reported in ClinVar (Variation ID 12274). It has been identified in 1.9% (389/19954) of East Asian chromosomes by gnomAD ( Computational prediction tools and conservation analysis suggest that this variant may not impact the protein, though this information is not predictive enough to rule out pathogenicity. In vitro functional studies provide some evidence that this variant impacts protein function (Gagne 2002 PMID: 12181437, Udomuksorn 2007 PMID: 18004206); however, these types of assays may not accurately represent biological function. In summary, the clinical significance of this variant is uncertain. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PS3_Supporting, BS1_Supporting, BP4.

PreventionGenetics, part of Exact Sciences RCV004532328 SCV004120217 uncertain significance UGT1A1-related disorder 2024-02-08 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The UGT1A1 c.686C>A variant is predicted to result in the amino acid substitution p.Pro229Gln. The minor allele frequency of this variant is over 1% in the East Asian sub-population, including 3 homozygotes, indicating this variant may be too common to be a primary cause of a Mendelian disease. However, an in vitro study indicated this variant caused a reduction in the activity of bilirubin UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) (Koiwai et al. 1995. PubMed ID: 8528206). The contribution of this variant to disease remains under debate (Kaniwa et al. 2005. PubMed ID: 15572581; Zhang et al. 2007. PubMed ID: 17060921; Wisnumurti et al. 2018. PubMed ID: 29607327), and classifications for this variant from outside laboratories range from benign to pathogenic ( Therefore, we classify c.686C>A (p.Pro229Gln) as a variant of uncertain significance.
