GeneDx RCV000161026 SCV000211747 uncertain significance not specified 2017-09-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted TP53 c.475G>C at the cDNA level, p.Ala159Pro (A159P) at the protein level, and results in the change of an Alanine to a Proline (GCC>CCC) in exon 5. This variant has never been reported in the germline to our knowledge; however, it has been seen in a breast tumor and hepatocellular carcinoma (Marchetti 2003, Chen 2003). A co-immunoprecipitation assay of the TP53 protein encoding this variant, within the context of HCC, showed no loss of binding ability to ZBP-89 (Chen 2003). TP53 Ala159Pro was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Since Alanine and Proline differ in some properties, this is considered a semi-conservative amino acid substitution. TP53 Ala159Pro alters a position that is conserved across species and is located in region required for interaction with FBXO42 (UniProt). In silico analyses predict that this variant is probably damaging to protein structure and function. Based on currently available information, it is unclear whether TP53 Ala159Pro is a pathogenic mutation or a benign variant. The variant is found in HEREDICANCER panel(s).
