Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000037429 SCV000061086 uncertain significance not specified 2011-12-08 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant classified as Uncertain Significance - Favor Benign. The Tyr281Cys varia nt (LAMP2) has not been previously reported. It has been detected by our labora tory in 1 out of >1250 Caucasian probands tested. This individual had DCM + mus cle weakness and carried a likely pathogenic variant in the LMNA gene. A reporte d paternal family history of disease is be inconsistent with X-linked inheritanc e and argues against a pathogenic role of the Tyr281Cys variant. In addition, ty rosine (Tyr) at position 281 is not conserved in mammals and lower species, sugg esting that a change at this position may be tolerated. Computational prediction s are mixed on the predicted impact to the protein (AlignGVGD = benign and SIFT = pathogenic), though the accuracy of these tools is unknown. Importantly, path ogenic missense variants are very rare in the LAMP2 gene (most disease causing v ariants cause a loss of function). In summary, this variant is less likely disea se causing and is more likely a modifier or benign. However, additional evidenc e is needed to determine this with certainty.
