GeneDx RCV000413866 SCV000491842 uncertain significance not specified 2016-11-23 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing A variant of uncertain significance has been identified in the ALMS1 gene. The G4016D variant has not been published as a pathogenic variant, nor has it been reported as a benign variant to our knowledge. This variant was not observed with any significant frequency in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project. This substitution occurs at a position that is not conserved across species. In silico analysis predicts this variant likely does not alter the protein structure/function. Nevertheless, the G4016D 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.
Invitae RCV000477216 SCV000541334 uncertain significance Alstrom syndrome 2019-12-15 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces glycine with aspartic acid at codon 4016 of the ALMS1 protein (p.Gly4016Asp). The glycine residue is moderately conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between glycine and aspartic acid. This variant is present in population databases (rs200462734, ExAC 0.04%). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with ALMS1-related disease. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 373262). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function do not agree on the potential impact of this missense change (SIFT: "Tolerated"; PolyPhen-2: "Probably Damaging"; Align-GVGD: "Class C0"). In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine,Sinai Health System RCV000991516 SCV001553166 uncertain significance not provided no assertion criteria provided clinical testing The ALMS1 p.Gly4014Asp variant was not identified in the literature but was identified in dbSNP (ID: rs200462734) and ClinVar (uncertain significance by GeneDx and Invitae). The variant was identified in control databases in 60 of 281608 chromosomes at a frequency of 0.0002131 (Genome Aggregation Database March 6, 2019, v2.1.1). The variant was observed in the following populations: European (non-Finnish) in 50 of 128624 chromosomes (freq: 0.000389), Other in 2 of 7164 chromosomes (freq: 0.000279), African in 2 of 24396 chromosomes (freq: 0.000082), European (Finnish) in 2 of 25106 chromosomes (freq: 0.00008), South Asian in 2 of 30616 chromosomes (freq: 0.000065) and Latino in 2 of 35430 chromosomes (freq: 0.000056), but was not observed in the Ashkenazi Jewish or East Asian populations. The p.Gly4014 residue is not conserved in mammals and four out of five computational analyses (PolyPhen-2, SIFT, AlignGVGD, BLOSUM, MutationTaster) do not suggest a high likelihood of impact to the protein; however, this information is not predictive enough to rule out pathogenicity. The variant occurs outside of the splicing consensus sequence and in silico or computational prediction software programs (SpliceSiteFinder, MaxEntScan, NNSPLICE, GeneSplicer) do not predict a difference in splicing. In summary, based on the above information the clinical significance of this variant cannot be determined with certainty at this time. This variant is classified as a variant of uncertain significance.
