Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000155456 SCV000205147 uncertain significance not specified 2013-11-08 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant classified as Uncertain Significance - Favor Benign. The Glu517Lys varia nt in ABCA3 has not been previously identified in individuals with pulmonary dis ease. This variant has been identified in 1/8600 European American chromosomes b y the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project (http://evs.gs.washington.edu/EVS/; dbSNP r s201157181). Glutamic acid (Glu) at position 517 is poorly conserved in evolutio n and at least 2 mammals (tarsier and alpaca) carry the variant amino acid, rais ing the possibility that this change may be tolerated. Additional computational analyses (biochemical amino acid properties, AlignGVGD, PolyPhen2, and SIFT) sug gest that the Glu517Lys variant may not impact the protein, though this informat ion is not predictive enough to rule out pathogenicity. In summary, this variant is less likely disease causing but additional information is needed to fully as sess its clinical significance.
