Illumina Laboratory Services, Illumina RCV000357990 SCV000372928 benign Niemann-Pick disease, type A 2018-01-12 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed in the ICSL laboratory as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. It had not been previously curated by ICSL or reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD: prior to June 1st, 2018), and was therefore a candidate for classification through an automated scoring system. Utilizing variant allele frequency, disease prevalence and penetrance estimates, and inheritance mode, an automated score was calculated to assess if this variant is too frequent to cause the disease. Based on the score and internal cut-off values, a variant classified as benign is not then subjected to further curation. The score for this variant resulted in a classification of benign for this disease.

Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV000334737 SCV000918246 benign not specified 2018-06-04 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: SMPD1 c.714A>G alters a non-conserved nucleotide resulting in a synonymous change. 4/5 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 0.011 in 273774 control chromosomes in the gnomAD database, including 170 homozygotes. The observed variant frequency is approximately 4.96 fold of the estimated maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic variant in SMPD1 causing Niemann-Pick Disease Type A phenotype (0.0022), strongly suggesting that the variant is benign. To our knowledge, no occurrence of c.714A>G in individuals affected with Niemann-Pick Disease Type A and no experimental evidence demonstrating its impact on protein function have been reported. Three clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. All laboratories classified the variant as benign/likely benign. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as benign.
GeneDx RCV000675392 SCV000971109 benign not provided 2018-06-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is considered likely benign or benign based on one or more of the following criteria: it is a conservative change, it occurs at a poorly conserved position in the protein, it is predicted to be benign by multiple in silico algorithms, and/or has population frequency not consistent with disease.
Ambry Genetics RCV002365293 SCV002662320 likely benign Inborn genetic diseases 2022-06-02 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This alteration is classified as likely benign based on a combination of the following: seen in unaffected individuals, population frequency, intact protein function, lack of segregation with disease, co-occurrence, RNA analysis, in silico models, amino acid conservation, lack of disease association in case-control studies, and/or the mechanism of disease or impacted region is inconsistent with a known cause of pathogenicity.
