GeneDx RCV000487256 SCV000567676 pathogenic not provided 2018-02-15 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.2657+5G>A variant in the CFTR gene (also reported as c.2789+5G>A due to alternate nomenclature) has been reported previously as a pathogenic variant, with a variant frequency of 0.38% among individuals with clinically diagnosed cystic fibrosis (McKone et al., 2003; Watson et al., 2004; De Boeck et al., 2014). Functional studies have shown that c.2657+5G>A causes aberrant splicing and results in the skipping of exon 16. Also, very low levels of CFTR are expressed in mutant cell lines (Masvidal et al., 2014; Sharma et al., 2014). The c.2657+G>A variant was not observed at any significant frequency in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. We interpret c.2657+5G>A as a pathogenic variant.

Several computational tools predict a significant impact on normal splicing: Two predict the variant abolishes a 5' splicing donor site. Three predict the variant weakens a 5' donor site. At least one publication reports experimental evidence that this variant affects mRNA splicing. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 7.2e-05 in 277224 control chromosomes. The c.2657+5G>A variant has been reported in the literature in multiple individuals affected with Cystic Fibrosis. These data indicate that the variant is very likely to be associated with disease. Four clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. All laboratories classified the variant as pathogenic. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as pathogenic.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000043564 SCV000967659 pathogenic Cystic fibrosis 2018-03-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.2657+5G>A variant in CFTR represents 0.3-0.48% of alleles identified in in dividuals with cystic fibrosis (McKone 2003, Watson 2004, Boeck 2014). RNA studi es have shown that the c.2657+5G>A causes aberrant splicing, resulting in the sk ipping of exons 15 and 16 and leading to a significantly decreased expression of CFTR (Masvidal 2014, Sharma 2014). Accordingly, this variant is considered as a class V variant, leading to reduced amounts of functioning CFTR protein. It has been identified in 19/126716 European chromosomes by the Genome Aggregation Dat abase (gnomAD,; dbSNP rs80224560). Although thi s variant has been seen in the general population, its frequency is low enough t o be consistent with a recessive carrier frequency. Moreover, the c.2657+5G>A va riant was classified as Pathogenic on March 3, 2004 by the American College of M edical Genetics and Genomics (ClinVar SCV000071401.2). In summary, the c.2657+5G >A variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for CFTR-related disord ers, including cystic fibrosis, in an autosomal recessive manner based upon its frequency in affected individuals and functional evidence.
