ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics, ARUP Laboratories RCV000507549 SCV000885563 pathogenic not provided 2018-03-09 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The HBB c.79G>T; Glu26Ter variant (rs33950507) has been identified in individuals with beta thalassemia that also harbored the HbE (HBB: Lys26Glu) variant (see link to HbVar, Fucharoen 1990). It is reported as pathogenic in ClinVar by one laboratory (Variation ID: 38650) and is absent from general population databases (1000 Genomes Project, Exome Variant Server, and Genome Aggregation Database), indicating it is not a common polymorphism. This variant induces an early termination codon and functional studies demonstrate an absence of beta globin protein (Neu-Yilik 2011). Based on the above information, this variant is considered pathogenic.

Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000781460 SCV000919497 pathogenic Hemoglobinopathy 2017-12-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: The HBB c.79G>T (p.Glu27X, also known as CD26 G>T) variant results in a premature termination codon, predicted to cause a truncated or absent HBB protein due to nonsense mediated decay, which are commonly known mechanisms for disease. Truncations downstream of this position have been classified as pathogenic by our laboratory (e.g. c.85dupC/p.Leu29fsX16, c.110delC/p.Pro37fsX25, etc.). One in silico tool predicts a damaging outcome for this variant. This variant is absent in 277088 control chromosomes. It has been reported in multiple affected individuals. Variant involving the same neucleotide c.79G>A/p.Glu27Lys is a common HbE variant and the region around codon 26 has been suggested as mutation hotspot(Fucharoen_1990). In addition, multiple clinical diagnostic laboratories/reputable databases classified this variant as pathogenic. Taken together, this variant is classified as pathogenic.
