Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000215066 SCV000271915 likely pathogenic Homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia 2021-03-22 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Gly335Ser variant in LDLR (also described as p.Glu314Ser in the literature) has been reported in at least 14 individuals with hypercholesterolemia: in at least 11 heterozygotes, 1 double heterozygote who also had a pathogenic variant in the PCSK9 gene, and in the compound heterozygous state with another pathogenic LDLR variant in a set of identical twins with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH; Hobbs 1992 PMID: 1301956, Wang 2001 PMID: 11668627, Laurie 2004 PMID: 15556094, Bertolini 2013 PMID: 23375686, Retterer 2015 PMID: 26633542, Abul-Husn 2016 PMID: 28008010, Rabacchi 2016 PMID: 27578127, Wang 2015 PMID: 27765764, Banares 2017 PMID: 28502510, Clinvar Variation ID 183105). It has also been identified in 2 individuals with myocardial infarction (Do 2015 PMID: 25487149, Thomaehlen 2015 PMID: 25647241). In the family with HoFH, this variant segregated with disease (in the compound heterozygous state) in 2 other affected siblings and in the heterozygous state in 2 other affected relatives (Rabacchi 2016 PMID: 27578127). Functional studies provide conflicting evidence on the impact of this variant on the protein (Hobbs 1992 PMID: 1301956, Thormaehlen 2015 PMID: 25647241). Additionally, this variant has been identified in 0.005% (7/128886) of European chromosomes by gnomAD ( This frequency is low enough to be consistent with the frequency of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) in the general population. Computational prediction tools and conservation analysis are consistent with pathogenicity. In summary, although additional studies are required to fully establish its clinical significance, this variant meets criteria to be classified as likely pathogenic for autosomal dominant FH. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PM3, PS4_Moderate, PP1, PP3, PM2_Supporting.

Invitae RCV001201392 SCV000819690 likely pathogenic Familial hypercholesterolemia 2020-07-29 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces glycine with serine at codon 335 of the LDLR protein (p.Gly335Ser). The glycine residue is highly conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between glycine and serine. This variant is present in population databases (rs544453230, ExAC 0.01%). This variant has been observed in several individuals affected with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) (PMID: 1301956, 23375686, 11668627, 28502510, 28008010, 27765764, 15556094) and individuals with myocardial infarction (PMID: 25647241, 25487149). This variant was shown to segregate with FH in a family that also carried another pathogenic variant in LDLR (PMID: 27578127). It is also known as G314S in the literature. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 183105). Experimental studies have shown that this missense change on LDLR activity is inconsistent (PMID: 1301956, 25647241). The observation of one or more missense substitutions at this codon (p.Gly335Val) in affected individuals suggests that this may be a clinically significant residue (PMID: 10735632). In summary, the currently available evidence indicates that the variant is pathogenic, but additional data are needed to prove that conclusively. Therefore, this variant has been classified as Likely Pathogenic.
Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine, Rady Children's Hospital San Diego RCV001201392 SCV001445927 likely pathogenic Familial hypercholesterolemia 2019-09-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant has been previously reported as a heterozygous change in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (PMID: 1301956, 23375686). It is present in the heterozygous state in the gnomAD population database at a frequency of 0.0028% (8/282,406) and thus is presumed to be rare. The c.1003G>A (p.Gly335Ser) variant affects a highly conserved amino acid and is predicted by multiple in silico tools to have a deleterious effect on protein function. Based on the available evidence, the c.1003G>A (p.Gly335Ser) variant is classified as Likely Pathogenic.

Broad Institute Rare Disease Group, Broad Institute RCV001201392 SCV001422749 uncertain significance Familial hypercholesterolemia 2020-01-22 no assertion criteria provided curation The p.Gly335Ser variant in LDLR has been reported in at least 6 individuals with familial hypercholesterolemia (PMID: 1301956, 11668627, 15556094, 27765764, 27578127, 28008010, 2852510) and has been identified in 0.005431% (7/128886) of European (non-Finnish) chromosomes and 0.005016% (1/19938) of East Asian chromosomes by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD,; dbSNP rs544453230). This variant has also been reported in ClinVar (PMID: 183105) as likely benign by Centre de Genetique Moleculaire et Chromosomique, as a VUS by the Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, as likely pathogenic by the British Heart Foundation, Roberts Research Institute, Instituto Nacional de Saude Doutor Ricardo Jorge, Iberoamerican FH Network, Invitae, and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and as Pathogenic by U4M - Lille University & CHRU Lille. In vitro functional studies provide some evidence that the p.Gly335Ser variant may not impact protein function (PMID: 25647241). However, these types of assays may not accurately represent biological function. Computational prediction tools and conservation analyses suggest that this variant may impact the protein, though this information is not predictive enough to determine pathogenicity. 4 affected individuals with this variant have an alternative molecular basis for familial hypercholesterolemia , suggesting that this variant may not be pathogenic (PMID: 27578127). In summary, the clinical significance of the p.Gly335Arg variant is uncertain. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PS4_moderate, PP3, BP5, BS3_supporting (Richards 2015).
