GeneDx RCV000186749 SCV000240316 uncertain significance not provided 2018-03-06 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Gly494Val (GGT>GTT): c.1481 G>T in exon 16 of the ALDH7A1 gene (NM_001182.4). The Gly494Val variant 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. This substitution occurs at a position that is highly conserved across species, and in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Additionally, a different missense mutation at the same position (Gly494Arg) and a missense mutation in the adjacent amino acid (Ala495Thr) have been previously reported in association with pyridoxine dependent epilepsy, supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. However, the Gly494Val variant is a conservative amino acid substitution, which is not likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues share similar properties. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether this variant is a pathogenic mutation or a rare benign variant. The variant is found in INFANT-EPI panel(s).
