GeneDx RCV000189183 SCV000242815 uncertain significance not provided 2018-02-22 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Cys1940Phe (TGT>TTT): c.5819 G>T in exon 27 of the SCN2A gene (NM_021007.2). The Cys1940Phe missense change has not been published as a mutation, nor has it been reported as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. It 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. The amino acid substitution is non-conservative as a polar Cysteine residue is replaced by a non-polar Phenylalanine residue and the loss of a Cysteine may affect the formation of disulfide bonds in the SCN2A protein. However, Cys1940Phe alters a position that is not conserved in the C-terminal region of the protein and several in-silico algorithms predict it may be non-pathogenic. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether Cys1940Phe is a disease-causing mutation or a rare benign variant. The variant is found in INFANT-EPI panel(s).
