Please note that for diseases with clinical variability, or reduced penetrance, pathogenic variants may be present at a low frequency in the general population. This variant has also been reported as a likely benign variant, likely pathogenic variant, and pathogenic variant in ClinVar (Variation ID: 226344). In vitro functional studies with transfected COS cells provide some evidence that the p.Cys329Tyr variant may impact LDL receptor activity (PMID: 26608663). 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. One additional variant with a different amino acid change at the same position (p.Cys329Phe) has been reported in association with disease in ClinVar, supporting that a change at this position may not be tolerated (Variation ID: 251586). In summary, although additional studies are required to fully establish its clinical significance, this variant is likely pathogenic. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PS4, PS3_supporting, PM5_supporting, PP3 (Richards 2015).
