ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics,ARUP Laboratories RCV001000151 SCV001156636 likely pathogenic not specified 2018-09-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.[316-12T>C; 316-7C>A] complex variant is reported in the literature in multiple individuals as a very mild beta + thalassemia trait (Belisario 2015, Waye 2013), and has been found in trans with Hb S and Hb C in patients with clinical symptoms (Cross 2007, Belisario 2015, Waye 2013). The c.316-12T>C variant (rs755236703) is only observed on three alleles in the Genome Aggregation Database. The c.316-7C>A variant (rs34483965) is only observed on one allele in the Genome Aggregation Database. These are intronic variants in weakly conserved nucleotides, and computational analyses (Alamut v.2.11) predict that each variant may impact splicing by weakening the nearby canonical acceptor splice site, however, without mRNA analysis it is unclear how the combination of the two variants impact splicing. Based on available information, the c.[316-12T>C; 316-7C>A] complex variant is considered to be likely pathogenic. References: Belisario A et al.
