ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics,ARUP Laboratories RCV000757365 SCV000885558 likely benign not provided 2017-05-23 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Hb Rambam variant (HBB: c.209G>A, Gly69Asp) has been reported heterozygously in multiple individuals with no associated clinical symptoms (Bisse 1998, HbVar database and references therein). It has also been found in trans with a pathogenic HBB variant in individuals, but did not contribute to their clinical symptoms (Plaseska-Karanfilska 2000). The variant is listed in ClinVar (Variation ID: 15226), and is observed once in the Genome Aggregation Database general population database (1/246190 alleles). The glycine at residue 69 is weakly conserved, and computational algorithms (Align GVGD, PolyPhen-2, SIFT) predict that the variant has no impact on the protein. Based on the above information, the variant is considered likely benign. REFERENCES Link to HbVar database for Hb Rambam: Bisse E et al.
