Invitae RCV000464438 SCV000553696 pathogenic Dyskeratosis congenita 2018-11-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces alanine with valine at codon 353 of the DKC1 protein (p.Ala353Val). The alanine residue is highly conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between alanine and valine. This variant is not present in population databases (rs121912288, ExAC no frequency). This variant has been reported in numerous individuals affected with dyskeratosis congenita (DKC), and it is known to be the most frequent cause of the disease (PMID: 10364516, 16332973, 19835419). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 11587). Experimental studies have shown that this missense change causes defective interaction of the DKC1 protein (known as dyskerin) with human telomerase and leads to impaired telomerase function in vitro and in vivo (PMID: 19835419, 25992652, 22058290, 19391112). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
