Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV000506879 SCV001362682 uncertain significance not specified 2019-06-18 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: CFTR c.870-7_870-5delTTT alters a nucleotide located close to a canonical splice site and therefore could affect mRNA splicing, leading to a significantly altered protein sequence. 5/5 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 0.00047 in 248124 control chromosomes in the gnomAD database, including 2 homozygotes. This frequency is not higher than expected for a pathogenic variant in CFTR causing Cystic Fibrosis (0.00047 vs 0.013), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. The variant, c.870-7_870-5delTTT, has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with Cystic Fibrosis (Shastri_2008, Kharrazi_2015). To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. Two ClinVar submissions from other clinical diagnostic laboratories (evaluation after 2014) cite the variant once as uncertain significance and once as likely benign. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as uncertain significance until additional information becomes available.
Ambry Genetics RCV000868641 SCV002682262 benign Cystic fibrosis 2023-06-07 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 RCV003114635 SCV003800492 uncertain significance not provided 2022-03-11 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The CFTR c.870-7_870-5del variant (rs759762840) has been reported in a homozygous state in an individual with predominantly gastrointestinal symptoms associated with CFTR-related disorder, but not classical cystic fibrosis (Shastri 2008). In addition, this variant was found along with a second pathogenic variant in an individual with cystic fibrosis (Kharrazzi 2015). This variant is reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 439088), and is found in the South Asian population with an allele frequency of 0.38% (117/30664 alleles, 2 homozygotes) in the Genome Aggregation Database. This deletion occurs upstream of the acceptor splice consensus sequence of intron six, and computational analyses (Alamut v.2.11) predict that this variant does not alter splicing. Although the c.870-7_870-5del variant is unlikely to be causative of cystic fibrosis, its clinical significance in CFTR-related disorders cannot be determined with certainty.
