Although this variant has been seen in the general population, its frequency is low enough to be consistent with a dominant frequency for a disease with clinical variability/reduced penetrance. Please note that for diseases with clinical variability, or reduced penetrance, pathogenic variants may be present at a low frequency in the general population. The number of reported affected individuals with this variant is slightly greater than expected compared to non-affected individuals with this variant. This variant has also been reported as a VUS and a pathogenic variant in ClinVar (Variation ID: 251611). This nonsense variant leads to a premature termination codon at position 349, which is predicted to lead to a truncated or absent protein. Heterozygous loss of function of the LDLR gene is an established disease mechanism in Familial Hypercholesterolemia. In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for Familial Hypercholesterolemia in an autosomal dominant manner based on the predicted impact of the variant and multiple occurrences in individuals with Familial Hypercholesterolemia. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PVS1, PM2_Supporting, PS4_Supporting (Richards 2015).
