GeneDx RCV000587433 SCV000568550 uncertain significance not provided 2017-12-05 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The D1270N variant in the CFTR gene has been reported previously in trans with the common delta F508 pathogenic variant in an individual with normal sweat chloride levels, a normal chest roentgenogram but who had CAVD (Anguiano et al., 1992). Expression studies in HeLa and FRT cells showed that D1270N transfected cells displayed decreased chloride transport activity compared to wild type cells (Fanen et al., 1999; Van Goor et al., 2014). However, D1270N has also been identified unaffected individuals who were compound heterozygous for D1270N and a definitively pathogenic variant (Sugarman et al., 2014). The D1270N variant is a semi-conservative amino acid substitution, which may impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in some properties. This substitution occurs at a position that is conserved across species. In silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. We interpret D1270N as a variant of uncertain significance.

In individuals where the p.Asp1270Asn alone was reported in trans with p.Phe508del, they had normal or slightly elevated sweat chloride levels (Anguiano 1992, Padoa 1999). Functional characterization of the p.Asp1270Asn variant indicates reduced overall mRNA and protein expression (van Goor 2014), reduced chloride conductance (Sosnay 2013, van Goor 2014) and altered response patterns (Fanen 1999). However, protein maturation and glycosylation is comparable to wildtype (Fanen 1999, Sosnay 2013, van Goor 2014). This variant is found in the general population with an overall allele frequency of 0.1% (315/276666 alleles, including 3 homozygotes) in the Genome Aggregation Database. The aspartate at residue 1270 is highly conserved, and computational algorithms ( PolyPhen-2, SIFT) predict that the variant has an impact on the protein. Based on the above information, the variant is classified as very mildly pathogenic.
Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000480239 SCV000696992 uncertain significance not specified 2019-06-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: CFTR c.3808G>A (p.Asp1270Asn) results in a conservative amino acid change located in the ABC transporter-like and AAA+ ATPase domains of the encoded protein sequence. Three of five in-silico tools predict a damaging effect of the variant on protein function. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.002 in 269544 control chromosomes (gnomAD database and publications), including 2 homozygotes. This frequency is not higher than expected for a pathogenic variant in CFTR causing Congenital Bilateral Absence of the Vas Deferens (0.002 vs 0.013), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. The variant has been reported in numerous patients with CF, CBAVD, lung cancer, idiopathic chronic pancreatitis, and recurrent respiratory infections without strong evidence for causality (Verlingue_1993, Alonso_2007, Bombieri_1998, Mercier_1995). This variant was found to co-occur frequently on the same allele with R74W (VUS in our internal database; indicated to be a polymorphism in a functional study (Fanen_1999)). The variant's complex forms p.[R74W;D1270N], p.[R74W;V201M;D1270N], and p.[R74W; R1070W;D1270N] are found in patients with CBAVD phenotype (Claustres_2000, Clausters_2004). The variant in its complex form did not cause CF in females when found in a compound heterozygous state with a disease-causing mutation such as p.Phe508del (Verlingue_1993; Claustres_2000), and similarly did not cause disease when reported as the single variant in trans with pathogenic mutations (Terlizzi_2016). Functional studies showed that this variant was associated with mildly reduced cAMP-activated chloride conductance activity and slight decrease in CFTR maturation (Fanen_1999, Van Goor_2013, Terlizzi_2016). One publication states that clinical and functional data "indicate that such mutations are not enough to cause disease" when discussing the variant as single or double mutant along with R74W (Terlizzi_2016). Six clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. Multiple laboratories reported the variant with conflicting assessments (4 VUS, 1 pathogenic, 1 benign). Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as VUS.

Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000480239 SCV000967180 likely benign not specified 2018-07-18 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Asp1270Asn variant in CFTR has been reported in isolation or as part of th e p.[Arg74Trp;Asp1270Asn] complex allele in several individuals with CFTR-relate d conditions (Aguiano 1992, Casals 1995, Fanen 1999, Padoa 1999, Ravnik-Glavac 2 000, Luzardo 2002, Girodon 2002, Masson 2013, Sosnay 2013, Terlizzi 2017, Behar 2017). However, it has also been identified in isolation in trans with known pat hogenic CFTR variants in 2 unaffected adult male individuals and as part of the p.[Arg74Trp;Asp1270Asn] allele in trans with a known pathogenic variant in 1 una ffected child (Terlizzi 2017). It has also been identified with the p.Val201Met allele as part of the p.[Arg74Trp;Val201Met;Asp1270Asn] complex allele in severa l individuals with CFTR-related conditions who carried additional pathogenic var iants in CFTR (Claustres 20004, Brugnon 2008, de Prada Merino 2010, Steiner 2011 , Masson 2013, Terlizzi 2017). However, the p.[Arg74Trp;Val201Met;Asp1270Asn] al lele has also been identified in trans with the p.Phe508del in twin boys who are reportedly unaffected, although the paper did not specify if they were examined for CBAVD (Brugnon 2008). In addition, the p.Asp1270Asn variant has been identi fied in 1.3% (315/24024) of African chromosomes, including 3 homozygotes, by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD, In sum mary, the p.Asp1270Asn variant in isolation or as part of the p.[Arg74Trp;Asp127 0Asn] complex allele is classified as likely benign based on the high allele fre quency and the presence of this variant in trans with known pathogenic variants in unaffected individuals, though the clinical significance of the p.[Arg74Trp;V al201Met;Asp1270Asn] complex allele is uncertain.

Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV001158873 SCV001320536 likely benign CFTR-related disorders 2017-04-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. A literature search was performed for the gene, cDNA change, and amino acid change (where applicable). Publications were found based on this search. The evidence from the literature, in combination with allele frequency data from public databases where available, was sufficient to determine this variant is unlikely to cause disease. Therefore, this variant is classified as likely benign.
