Invitae RCV000046702 SCV000074715 uncertain significance Cystic fibrosis 2019-06-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces methionine with threonine at codon 952 of the CFTR protein (p.Met952Thr). The methionine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between methionine and threonine. This variant is present in population databases (rs142773283, ExAC 0.06%), including at least one homozygous and/or hemizygous individual. This variant has been reported in individuals affected with congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (PMID: 10875853, 25087612) and chronic pancreatitis (PMID: 17003641, 20977904, 29589582), as well as control individuals (PMID: 24451227). Another individual with aquagenic keratoderma who had elevated chlorine and sodium levels was compound heterozygous for this variant (p.Met952Thr) and a deletion of exons 16-20 (PMID: 27026144). The clinical significance of these observations is uncertain. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 53579). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function (SIFT, PolyPhen-2, Align-GVGD) all suggest that this variant is likely to be disruptive, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies and their clinical significance is uncertain. This variant disrupts the p.Met952 amino acid residue in CFTR. Other variant(s) that disrupt this residue have been determined to be pathogenic (PMID: 15287992, 15070876, 16272798, 10200050, 21520337, 23276700, 16980811). This suggests that this residue is clinically significant, and that variants that disrupt this residue are likely to be disease-causing. 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.
Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV001255220 SCV000696929 uncertain significance not specified 2020-08-17 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: CFTR c.2855T>C (p.Met952Thr) results in a non-conservative amino acid change located in the ABC transporter type 1, transmembrane domain (IPR011527) 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 0.00027 in 255324 control chromosomes in the gnomAD database, including 1 homozygote. This frequency is not significantly higher than expected for a pathogenic variant in CFTR causing Congenital Bilateral Absence of the Vas Deferens (0.00027 vs 0.013), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. c.2855T>C has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with Congenital Bilateral Absence of the Vas Deferens and other CFTR-related disorders (Mak_1999, Casals_2000, Keiles_2006, Schneider_2011). These data indicate that the variant may be associated with disease. To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. Four other ClinVar submitters (evaluation after 2014) cite the variant as uncertain significance (n=2) or likely pathogenic (n=2). Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as VUS-possibly pathogenic.

Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000046702 SCV000916182 likely pathogenic Cystic fibrosis 2018-12-11 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The CFTR c.2855T>C (p.Met952Thr) missense variant has been reported in at least six studies and is reported in at least six individuals with CFTR-related disorders. Three of the individuals were males presenting with congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD) in whom the p.Met952Thr variant was identified in a compound heterozygous state with the p.Phe508del variant (Mak et al. 1999; Casals et al. 2000; Wilschanski et al. 2006). In addition one individual with aquagenic palmoplantar keratoderma also carried the variant in a compound heterozygous state (Cabrol et al. 2016). The remaining two individuals presented with pancreatitis. In both individuals, the p.Met952Thr variant was identified in a heterozygous state along with additional variants in other genes including an intronic heterozygous variant in the PRSS1 gene and a homozygous variant in the SPINK1 gene (Keiles et al. 2006; Schneider et al. 2011). The p.Met952Thr variant was present in one of 274 controls (Wilschanski et al. 2006; Schneider et al. 2011; Martinez et al. 2014) and is also reported at a frequency of 0.00058 in the European (non-Finnish) population of the Exome Aggregation Consortium, including one individual with the variant in a homozygous state. This variant has not been reported in individuals presenting with classic CF and is thought to be associated with a mild CF phenotype when present in trans with a second pathogenic variant (Schneider et al. 2011). Another variant at the same amino acid position (p. Met952Ile) has also been identified in probands with CFTR-related disorders (Uzun et al. 2005; Steiner et al. 2011). Based on the collective evidence, the p.Met952Thr variant is classified as likely pathogenic for CFTR-related disorders. This variant was observed by ICSL as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population.
