GeneDx RCV000478445 SCV000573095 uncertain significance not provided 2017-02-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted TP53 c.1013T>C at the cDNA level, p.Phe338Ser (F338S) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Phenylalanine to a Serine (TTC>TCC). In vitro functional studies have demonstrated that this variant does not affect tetramer formation but does confer reduced transciptional activity (Kakudo 2005, Kawaguchi 2005), and furthermore this variant is reported as having partially functional transactivation in the International Agency for Research on Cancer TP53 database based on functional assays by Kato et al. (2003). TP53 Phe338Ser was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, suggesting it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Since Phenylalanine and Serine differ in polarity, charge, size or other properties, this is considered a non-conservative amino acid substitution. TP53 Phe338Ser occurs at a position that is not conserved and is located in the tetramerization domain (Bode 2004). In silico analyses predict that this variant is probably damaging to protein structure and function. Based on currently available evidence, it is unclear whether TP53 Phe338Ser is a pathogenic or benign variant. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.
