Invitae RCV002541339 SCV003476466 uncertain significance Cystic fibrosis 2022-06-15 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change falls in intron 24 of the CFTR gene. It does not directly change the encoded amino acid sequence of the CFTR protein. It affects a nucleotide within the consensus splice site. This variant is not present in population databases (gnomAD no frequency). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals affected with CFTR-related conditions. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 1330039). Variants that disrupt the consensus splice site are a relatively common cause of aberrant splicing (PMID: 17576681, 9536098). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of sequence changes on RNA splicing suggest that this variant is not likely to affect RNA splicing. 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.
Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV003331206 SCV004039048 uncertain significance not specified 2023-08-11 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: CFTR c.3963+6G>T alters a non-conserved nucleotide located close to a canonical splice site and therefore could affect mRNA splicing, leading to a significantly altered protein sequence. 4/4 computational tools predict no significant impact on normal splicing. However, these predictions have yet to be confirmed by functional studies. The variant was absent in 250260 control chromosomes (gnomAD). The available data on variant occurrences in the general population are insufficient to allow any conclusion about variant significance. c.3963+6G>T has been reported in the literature in an individual who underwent newborn screening for Cystic Fibrosis who also had p.F508del without parental testing to confirm phase (Prach_2013), and no diagnosis was reported. This report does not provide unequivocal conclusions about association of the variant with Cystic Fibrosis. To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. The following publication has been ascertained in the context of this evaluation (PMID: 23810505). Two submitters have cited clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014. Both submitters classified the variant as uncertain significance. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as uncertain significance.
PreventionGenetics, part of Exact Sciences RCV004536318 SCV004735534 likely benign CFTR-related disorder 2022-04-04 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is classified as likely benign based on ACMG/AMP sequence variant interpretation guidelines (Richards et al. 2015 PMID: 25741868, with internal and published modifications).
