GeneDx RCV000182743 SCV000235128 uncertain significance not provided 2015-03-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Met2172Lys (ATG>AAG): c.6515 T>A in exon 42 of the RYR2 gene (NM_001035.2). Approximately 50% of patients with autosomal dominant CPVT have been reported to have a mutation in the RYR2 gene, while mutations in the RYR2 gene associated with ARVC are rare (McNally E et al., 2009; Napolitano C et al., 2012). It has not been published as a mutation, nor has it been reported as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. The M2172K variant was not observed in approximately 6,300 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. The M2172K variant is a non-conservative amino acid substitution, which is likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in polarity, charge, size and/or other properties. Additionally, this substitution occurs at a position that is conserved across species and in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Furthermore, a missense mutation in nearby residue (V2178I) has been reported in association with CPVT, supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether this variant is a pathogenic mutation or a rare benign variant. The variant is found in ARRHYTHMIA panel(s).
