GeneDx RCV000485632 SCV000570790 uncertain significance not provided 2016-06-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted TP53 c.532C>A at the cDNA level, p.His178Asn (H178N) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Histidine to an Asparagine (CAC>AAC). This variant has not, to our knowledge, been published in the literature as either a pathogenic germline variant or a benign polymorphism. However, it has been reported as a somatic variant in skin and other cancers (Ziegler 1993, Weber 2002) and 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 His178Asn 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 Histidine and Asparagine differ in some properties, this is considered a semi-conservative amino acid substitution. TP53 His178Asn occurs at a position that is not conserved and is located in the DNA binding domain (Bode 2004). In silico analyses are inconsistent regarding the effect this variant may have on protein structure and function. Based on currently available evidence, it is unclear whether TP53 His178Asn is pathogenic or benign. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.
