Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000036882 SCV000060537 uncertain significance not specified 2012-08-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant classified as Uncertain Significance - Favor Pathogenic. The Trp531X var iant in ACTN2 has not been reported in the literature and has not been identifie d in large and broad populations by the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project (http://e Although this low frequency is consistent with a dise ase-causing role, it is insufficient to establish this with confidence. This non sense variant leads to a premature termination codon at position 531, which is p redicted to lead to a truncated or absent protein. While variants in ACTN2 are a ssociated with HCM (Chiu 2010), it remains unclear if a heterozygous loss of fun ction of this gene would have a role in the etiology of HCM or other cardiomyopa thies. In summary, additional information is needed to fully assess the clinical significance of the Trp531X variant.
