Invitae RCV001220029 SCV001392000 uncertain significance Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease axonal type 2F 2019-05-18 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces glycine with tryptophan at codon 84 of the HSPB1 protein (p.Gly84Trp). The glycine residue is highly conserved and there is a large physicochemical difference between glycine and tryptophan. The frequency data for this variant in the population databases is considered unreliable, as metrics indicate poor data quality at this position in the ExAC database. This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with HSPB1-related conditions. Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function (SIFT, PolyPhen-2, Align-GVGD) all suggest that this variant is likely to be disruptive, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies and their clinical significance is uncertain. This variant disrupts the p.Gly84 amino acid residue in HSPB1. Other variant(s) that disrupt this residue have been determined to be pathogenic (PMID: 18344398, 18832141, 21892769, 23948568, 25429913). This suggests that this residue is clinically significant, and that variants that disrupt this residue are likely to be disease-causing. 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.
