Invitae RCV002790477 SCV003031177 uncertain significance Niemann-Pick disease, type B; Niemann-Pick disease, type A 2021-08-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces arginine with tryptophan at codon 231 of the SMPD1 protein (p.Arg231Trp). The arginine residue is moderately conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between arginine and tryptophan. This variant is present in population databases (rs199832734, ExAC 0.01%). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals affected with SMPD1-related conditions. Advanced modeling of protein sequence and biophysical properties (such as structural, functional, and spatial information, amino acid conservation, physicochemical variation, residue mobility, and thermodynamic stability) performed at Invitae indicates that this missense variant is not expected to disrupt SMPD1 protein function. In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
