Institute for Genomic Statistics and Bioinformatics, University Hospital Bonn RCV001175332 SCV001338765 likely pathogenic Tay-Sachs disease criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing In exon 3 of the HEXA gene, the heterozygous missense variant NM_000520.5:c.347A>G;p.(Tyr116Cys) was detected which was inherited from the father of the patient; this variant could not be detected in the mother. The variant is thus compound heterozygous to the variant described above. This germ line variant is not listed in the population and phenotype databases. It concerns a highly conserved amino acid located in a functional domain. The mutation prediction programs Mutation Probe, SIFT, and Polyphen-2 estimate this variant as pathogenic; the CADD score is 33. The amino acid exchange by the above variant affects the first amino acid of exon 3, and to estimate a possible interference of the splice behavior by the above variant, different programs for the prediction of splice sites and splice enhancers were used with the help of the Alamut software. This in silica analysis does not provide any clear indication of a change in splice behavior. The canonical splice acceptor site is not significantly changed, but at the same position four of the five programs predict the emergence of a new splice donor site. It is therefore possible that this leads to a change in splicing behavior. An exact statement about the effect of the variant on the protein level is not possible. The ACMG classification for this variant is: variant probably pathogenic (class 4: PM2, PM3, PP3).
