ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics,ARUP Laboratories RCV001002407 SCV001160338 likely pathogenic not specified 2019-02-19 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The CFTR c.742A>G; p.Arg248Gly variant is reported in the literature in three siblings affected with pancreatitis or congenital absence of the vas deferens (Villalona 2017). In all three affected siblings, this variant was observed in trans to a second pathogenic variant (Villalona 2017). The p.Arg248Gly variant is absent from general population databases (Exome Variant Server, Genome Aggregation Database), indicating it is not a common polymorphism. The arginine at codon 248 is highly conserved, and computational analyses (SIFT, PolyPhen-2) predict that this variant is deleterious. Another variant at the same codon (p.Arg248Thr) has been reported in individuals with CFTR-related disorders in trans to a pathogenic variant (Polizzi 2011, SickKids CFTR Mutation Database). Additionally, the c.742A>G; p.Arg248Gly occurs in the penultimate nucleotide of an exon, and computational analyses (Alamut v.2.11) predict that this variant may impact splicing by weakening the nearby canonical donor splice site. Although this variant is unlikely to be causative for classic cystic fibrosis, based on available information, we consider this variant to be likely pathogenic for other CFTR-related disorders.
