While 342N was identified in four patients with early-onset myocardial infarction, it was also identified in 10 control individuals of advanced age with no history of myocardial infarction. Additionally, cholesterol and LDL levels were not reported (Do et al., 2015). The NHLBI ESP Exome Sequencing Project reports that D342N was observed in 27/4406 (0.61%) alleles from individuals of African American background, indicating it may be a rare variant in this population. The D342N variant is a semi-conservative amino acid substitution, which may impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in some properties. This substitution occurs at a position that is not conserved across species, and in silico analysis predicts this variant likely does not alter the protein structure/function. In addition, in vitro overexpression and complementation experiments suggest that D342N is non-disruptive to LDLR activity (Thormaehlen et al., 2015). A research group recently concluded that there was no definitive evidence for a genotype/phenotype association of D342N with familial hypercholesterolemia (Amendola et al., 2015; Olfson et al., 2015). We interpret D342N as a variant of uncertain significance.

The p.Asp342Asn var iant in LDLR has been reported in 3 individuals with possible or definitive hype rcholesterolemia (Do 1997, Fouchier 2001, Sjouke 2015), including in one individ ual with a second LDLR variant. However, this variant has also been identified i n 0.6% (160/24944) of African chromosomes by the Genome Aggregation Consortium ( gnomAD, http://exac.broadinstitute.org). Computational prediction tools and cons ervation analysis suggest that the variant may not impact the protein, though th is information is not predictive enough to rule out pathogenicity. In summary, w hile the clinical significance of the p.Asp342Asn variant is uncertain, its freq uency suggests that it is more likely to be benign.
