Functional studies show this variant to have approximately 45% of wild type function (Raraigh 2018). This variant is reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 7172). It is found in the general population with an overall allele frequency of 0.01% (32/282468 alleles) in the Genome Aggregation Database. The alanine at codon 349 is weakly conserved, but computational analyses (SIFT: Tolerated, PolyPhen-2: Possibly Damaging) predict conflicting effects of this variant on protein structure/function. Due to its reported occurrence in CFTR-related disorders, the p.Ala349Val variant is classified as mildly pathogenic. REFERENCES Dayangac D et al.

Four of five in-silico tools predict a damaging effect of the variant on protein function. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.00011 in 251726 control chromosomes (gnomAD and publications). This frequency is not significantly higher than expected for a pathogenic variant in CFTR causing Non-classic Cystic Fibrosis (0.00011 vs 0.013), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. c.1046C>T has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with Cystic Fibrosis, chronic pancreatis, and CBAVD. These data indicate that the variant may be associated with disease. Two publications report experimental evidence evaluating an impact on protein function. The most pronounced variant effect results in 30%-50% of normal activity (Raraigh_2018, Han_2018). A reputable database (CFTR2) stated that there is not enough information to determine whether or not A349V causes CF. Five ClinVar submissions (evaluation after 2014) cites the variant as pathogenic twice, once as likely pathogenic and twice as uncertain significance. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as VUS-possibly pathogenic.
