Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV000780110 SCV000917154 uncertain significance not specified 2021-12-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: CFTR c.4243-16A>G 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 allele was found at a frequency of 0.00012 in 249724 control chromosomes. This frequency is not significantly higher than expected for a pathogenic variant in CFTR causing Cystic Fibrosis (0.00012 vs 0.013), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. c.4243-16A>G has been reported in the literature in one individual with elevated sweat chloride levels (Mazumdar_2015). Thid 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. No clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as uncertain significance.

Ambry Genetics RCV002536862 SCV003855877 benign Cystic fibrosis 2022-11-10 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This alteration is classified as benign based on a combination of the following: seen in unaffected individuals, population frequency, intact protein function, lack of segregation with disease, co-occurrence, RNA analysis, in silico models, amino acid conservation, lack of disease association in case-control studies, and/or the mechanism of disease or impacted region is inconsistent with a known cause of pathogenicity.
ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics, ARUP Laboratories RCV003736905 SCV004565240 uncertain significance not provided 2023-07-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The CFTR c.4243-16A>G variant (rs780125251) is reported in the CFTR France database in an individual with pancreatitis and an individual with CBAVD (see link). This variant is also reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 632746). It is found in the general population with an overall allele frequency of 0.01% (31/249724 alleles) in the Genome Aggregation Database. This is an intronic variant in a weakly conserved nucleotide, but computational analyses (Alamut Visual Plus v.1.5.1) predict that this variant may impact splicing by weakening the nearby canonical acceptor splice site. Due to limited information, the clinical significance of this variant is uncertain at this time. References: CFTR France database link:
