Invitae RCV000168467 SCV000219167 pathogenic Joubert syndrome; Meckel-Gruber syndrome 2020-01-03 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change falls in intron 15 of the MKS1 gene. It does not directly change the encoded amino acid sequence of the MKS1 protein. The frequency data for this variant (rs749737706) in the population databases is unreliable, as metrics indicate poor quality at this position in the ExAC database. This variant is a well known cause of Meckel-Gruber syndrome, recognized as a founder mutation in the Finnish population, and it has been reported as homozygous and compound heterozygous in multiple affected individuals (PMID: 16415886, 17437276, 17377820, 17935508, 17397051). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 188400). Experimental studies in an affected individual's fibroblasts have demonstrated that this variant disrupts mRNA splicing by skipping exon 16, which leads to a premature stop codon and a truncated or absent protein (PMID: 16415886). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.

GeneDx RCV000273342 SCV000330065 pathogenic not provided 2018-06-11 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.1408-34_1408-6del29 pathogenic variant in the MSK1 gene has been reported previously using alternate nomenclature (IVS15-7_35, c.1408-7_35del) in association with autosomal recessive ciliopathies when present in the homozygous state or when in trans with another disease-causing variant (Kyttala et al., 2006; Khaddour et al., 2007; Frank et al, 2007; Auber et al., 2007). The c.1408-34_1408-6del29 variant is a founder mutation in the Finnish population and many other European populations (Kyttala et al., 2006; Frank et al., 2007). This deletion destroys the natural splice acceptor site in intron 15, and functional studies of this variant have demonstrated abnormal gene splicing (Kyttala et al., 2006). This 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. We interpret c.1408-34_1408-6del29 as a pathogenic variant.

Myriad Women's Health, Inc. RCV000210823 SCV001194240 pathogenic Meckel syndrome type 1 2019-12-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing NM_017777.3(MKS1):c.1408-34_1408-6del29 is classified as pathogenic in the context of MKS1-related disorders. Sources cited for classification include the following: PMID 16415886 and 23351400. Classification of NM_017777.3(MKS1):c.1408-34_1408-6del29 is based on the following criteria: This is a well-established pathogenic variant in the literature that has been observed more frequently in patients with clinical diagnoses than in healthy populations. Please note: this variant was assessed in the context of healthy population screening.
