ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics, ARUP Laboratories RCV000757077 SCV000885171 uncertain significance not provided 2017-11-09 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The CFTR c.960A>C; p.Leu320Phe variant is published in the medical literature in one individual with infertility (Morea 2005) and listed in a gene-specific database in an individual with suspected cystic fibrosis (see link below). The variant is not listed in the ClinVar database, but is listed in the dbSNP variant database (rs56093012) and in the Genome Aggregation Database in 3/277024 alleles. Another variant in the same codon, c.958T>G; p.Leu320Val is classified as mildly pathogenic, and found in individuals with CFTR-related disorders (Dorfman 2010, Lucarelli 2010, Masson 2013, Pelletier 2010, Shrijver 2005). The leucine at this position is highly conserved, but computational algorithms (AlignGVGD, PolyPhen2, SIFT) predict this variant is tolerated. Considering available information, there is insufficient evidence to classify this variant with certainty. Link to CFTR L320F in database: Dorfman R et al.
