GeneDx RCV000414058 SCV000492140 likely pathogenic not provided 2016-11-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R148C missense variant in the BTD gene has not been published as a pathogenic variant, nor has it been reported as a benign variant to our knowledge. The R148C variant was not observed with any significant frequency in approximately 6500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project. The R148C variant is a non-conservative amino acid substitution, which is likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in polarity, charge, size and/or other properties. This substitution occurs at a position that is not conserved; however, a missense variant at the same position (R148H) has been reported in association with biotinidase deficiency in the Human Gene Mutation Database and the ARUP mutation database (, and missense variants in nearby residues (C143F, F149L, T152P, T152R) have also been reported in the two databases in association with biotinidase deficiency, supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. In silico analysis is inconsistent in its predictions as to whether or not the variant is damaging to the protein structure/function; although, the majority of models predict R148C to be damaging. In summary, this variant is likely pathogenic; however, the possibility that it is benign cannot be excluded.
