ClinGen Familial Hypercholesterolemia Variant Curation Expert Panel RCV000210239 SCV004022373 likely benign Hypercholesterolemia, familial, 1 2023-04-28 reviewed by expert panel curation The NM_000527.5(LDLR):c.1836C>T (p.Ala612=) variant is classified as likely benign for Familial Hypercholesterolemia by applying evidence code BP4 and BP7 as defined by the ClinGen Familial Hypercholesterolemia Expert Panel LDLR-specific variant curation guidelines ( The supporting evidence is as follows: BP4 - No REVEL, splicing evaluation required. Functional data on splicing not available. - Variant is exonic and at least 50bp downstream from canonical acceptor site but it does not create GT. - There is a GT nearby. MES scores: variant cryptic = -16.82, wt cryptic = -12.61, canonical donor = 4.48. Ratio variant cryptic/wt cryptic: -16.82/-12.61 = 1.33 --- it is above 1.1 Ratio variant cryptic/canonical donor: -16.82/4.48 = -3.75 --- it is not above 0.9 Variant is not predicted to alter splicing. BP7 - Variant is synonymous and meets BP4.

Illumina Laboratory Services, Illumina RCV000210239 SCV000410538 uncertain significance Hypercholesterolemia, familial, 1 2016-06-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.1836C>T (p.Ala612Ala) variant has been reported in two studies and is found in a total of eight familial hypercholesterolemia patients in a heterozygous state (Widhalm et al. 2007; Chmara et al. 2010). In silico analysis of this variant predicted no effect on consensus splice sites and overall non-pathogenicity (Chmara et al. 2010; Usifo et al. 2012). Control data are unavailable for this variant, which is reported at a frequency of 0.00034 in the European (Non-Finnish) population of the Exome Aggregation Consortium. The evidence for this variant is limited. The p.Ala612Ala variant is classified as a variant of unknown significance but suspicious for pathogenicity for familial hypercholesterolemia.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Mass General Brigham Personalized Medicine RCV000456101 SCV000539509 uncertain significance not specified 2017-01-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant identified in a genome or exome case(s) and assessed due to predicted null impact of the variant or pathogenic assertions in the literature or databases. Disclaimer: This variant has not undergone full assessment. The following are preliminary notes: This is a silent variant in LDLR. It is classified as DM in HGMD. This variant has been reported in 7 patients with familial hypercholesterolemia in one study (Widhalm 2007). This variant is classified in ClinVar with 1 star as VUS by Mayo Clinic and as Likely Benign by British Heart Foundation. The variant has a Max MAF of 0.03% in ExAC (23 alleles) and 0.03% in gnomAD (43 alleles).

Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV000456101 SCV000697212 likely benign not specified 2023-08-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: LDLR c.1836C>T alters a non-conserved nucleotide resulting in a synonymous change. Computational tools predict no significant impact on normal splicing. However, these predictions have yet to be confirmed by functional studies. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.00018 in 251468 control chromosomes (i.e., 46 heterozygotes; gnomAD v2.1 Exomes dataset). This frequency is not significantly higher than estimated for a pathogenic variant in LDLR causing Early Onset Coronary Artery Disease (0.00018 vs 0.001), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. The variant, c.1836C>T, has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with premature atherosclerosis and/or hypercholesterolaemia (e.g., Widhalm_2007, Chmara_2010, Saracoglu_2018). These reports do not provide unequivocal conclusions about association of the variant with disease. To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. The following publications have been ascertained in the context of this evaluation (PMID: 20145306, 28145427, 22881376, 17347910, 29870584). Multiple submitters have reported clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 with conflicting assessments (benign, n = 1; likely benign, n = 5; VUS, n = 4; likely pathogenic, n = 1). Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as likely benign.
