This variant has been reported in PMID:16621917 . This variant meets the following evidence codes reported in the ACMG-guideline. BS1:The minor allele frequency of this allele is high for Mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 4A (Alpers type). BS2:Observation of the variant in controls is inconsistent with penetrance of Mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 4A (Alpers type). BP4:Computational evidence/predictors indicate no impact on the POLG structure, function, or protein-protein interaction. Based on the evidence criteria codes applied, the variant is suggested to be Benign.
Center for Genomics, Ann and Robert H.

However, this variant is present in 0.7% (925/126620) of European alleles, including 3 homozygotes in the Genome Aggregation Database ( This variant is present in ClinVar with multiple different classifications, including several Likely Benign/Benign entries (Variation ID:65665). Evolutionary conservation and computational predictive tools suggest that this variant may not impact the protein. In addition, functional studies suggest that this variant retains 80-90% of activity relative to wild-type (Kasiviswanathan 2011 PMID:21856450). However, these studies may not accurately represent in vivo biological function. In summary, data on this variant is too conflicting for disease classification. Therefore, the clinical significance of this variant is uncertain.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000118011 SCV000967286 likely benign not specified 2018-10-05 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.1550G>T (p.Gly517Val) variant is classified as likely benign due to its fr equency in the general population. This variant has been identified in 0.73% (92 5/126620) of European chromosomes by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD, ht tp://, including 3 homozygotes. In addition, function al studies demonstrate an effect indistinguishable from wild type.

Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV001117969 SCV001276215 likely benign POLG-Related Spectrum Disorders 2017-04-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. A literature search was performed for the gene, cDNA change, and amino acid change (where applicable). Publications were found based on this search. The evidence from the literature, in combination with allele frequency data from public databases where available, was sufficient to determine this variant is unlikely to cause disease. Therefore, this variant is classified as likely benign.
