Invitae RCV000461193 SCV000550169 pathogenic Primary pulmonary hypertension 2016-08-30 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change creates a premature translational stop signal at codon 321 (p.Arg321*) of the BMPR2 gene. It is expected to result in an absent or disrupted protein product. Loss-of-function variants in BMPR2 are known to be pathogenic. This particular variant has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with pulmonary hypertension (PMID: 15591269, 16429395, 21801371). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics, ARUP Laboratories RCV001000182 SCV001156675 pathogenic not specified 2019-06-02 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The BMPR2 c.961C>T; p.Arg321Ter variant (rs1060502581) is reported in the literature in multiple individuals and families affected with pulmonary arterial hypertension (Girerd 2010, Koehler 2004, Machado 2006, Pfarr 2011, Rosenzweig 2008, Sztrymf 2008, Wang 2016). This variant is reported as pathogenic in ClinVar (Variation ID: 409826), and is absent from general population databases (Exome Variant Server, Genome Aggregation Database), indicating it is not a common polymorphism. This variant induces an early termination codon and is predicted to result in a truncated protein or mRNA subject to nonsense-mediated decay. This prediction is supported by in vitro functional analyses, which show reduced transcript and protein levels (Drake 2011, Dunmore 2013). Based on available information, this variant is considered to be pathogenic. References: Drake KM et al.
