GeneDx RCV000182896 SCV000235285 uncertain significance not provided 2014-08-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing c.848+2dupT: IVS11+2dupT in intron 11 of the RYR2 gene (NM_001035.2). The normal sequence with the base that is inserted in braces is TGCgt[t]aagt, with capital letters representing exonic sequence and lower case letters representing intronic sequence. 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). The c.848+2dupT variant has not been published as a mutation, nor has it been reported as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. The c.848+2dupT variant was not observed in approximately 6300 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. This variant destroys the natural splice donor site in intron 11 and is predicted to cause abnormal gene splicing. However, the vast majority of mutations in RYR2 are missense changes, and only one splice site mutation has been reported in association with CPVT, indicating haploinsufficiency of RYR2 may not be sufficient to cause arrhythmia. In the absence of functional mRNA studies, it is unknown whether this variant is leads to an abnormal message that is subject to nonsense-mediated mRNA decay, or to an abnormal protein product if the message is used for protein translation. 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).
