GeneDx RCV000623485 SCV000236835 likely pathogenic not provided 2018-03-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R13117X variant in the TTN gene has been reported previously in association with DCM; however, detailed clinical information and segregation data were not provided (Walsh et al., 2017). This variant is classified as a variant of uncertain significance and a likely pathogenic variant by several clinical laboratories in ClinVar (SCV000272648.1, SCV000339614.2, SCV000643183.1, SCV000584180.1; Landrum et al., 2016). In addition, the R13117X variant has been observed in several other individuals referred for DCM genetic testing at GeneDx; however, only one individual harbored no co-occurring cardiogenetic variants. The R13117X variant is not observed at a significant frequency in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016). The R13117X variant is predicted to cause loss of normal protein function either by protein truncation or nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Truncating TTN variants have been reported in approximately 3% of control alleles (Herman et al., 2012). Nevertheless, the R13117X variant is located in one of the constitutive exons in the distal I-band region and recent studies suggest that truncating variants affecting constitutive exons throughout the TTN gene are also associated with DCM (Schafer et al., 2017; Deo et al., 2017).
Invitae RCV000538338 SCV000643183 uncertain significance Dilated cardiomyopathy 1G; Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, type 2J 2017-05-01 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change results in a premature translational stop signal in exon 239 coding for the I-Band of the TTN mRNA at codon 14758 (p.Arg14758*). While this is not anticipated to result in nonsense mediated decay, it is expected to create a truncated TTN protein. This variant is present in population databases (rs140743001, ExAC 0.002%) but has not been reported in the literature in individuals with a TTN-related disease. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 202367). In summary, although this is a rare truncating variant, truncating variants affecting the I-Band have been shown to be highly prevalent in the TTN gene in the general population and unaffected individuals (PMID: 26701604, 22335739). Furthermore, this truncation is located outside of a clinically relevant region of the TTN gene (PMID: 25589632). For these reasons it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000599630 SCV000272648 likely pathogenic Primary dilated cardiomyopathy 2016-06-03 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Arg12190X variant in TTN has been identified by our laboratory in 1 Caucasian individual with DCM and 1 Caucasian individual with LVNC (LMM data). This variant has also been identified in 1/67564 European chromosomes by the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC,; dbSNP rs140743001). This nonsense variant leads to a premature termination codon at position 12190, which is predicted to lead to a truncated or absent protein. Nonsense and other truncating variants in TTN are strongly associated with DCM if they are located in the exons encoding for the A-band (Herman 2012, Pugh 2014) and/or are located in an exon that is highly expressed in the heart (Roberts 2015). The p.Arg12190X variant is located in I-band in the highly expressed exon 188. In summary, although additional studies are required to fully establish its clinical significance, the p.Arg12190X variant is likely pathogenic.
