ClinGen RASopathy Variant Curation Expert Panel RCV000037596 SCV000616533 likely pathogenic Cardio-facio-cutaneous syndrome 2017-05-09 reviewed by expert panel curation The c.388T>C (p.Tyr130His) variant in MAP2K1 has been reported in the literature as an unconfirmed de novo occurrence in a patient with clinical features of a RASopathy (PM6; PMID 19156172). This variant was absent from large population studies (PM2; ExAC, The variant is located in the MAP2K1 gene, which has been defined by the ClinGen RASopathy Expert Panel as a gene with a low rate of benign missense variants and pathogenic missense variants are common (PP2; PMID 29493581). Furthermore, the variant is in a location that has been defined by the ClinGen RASopathy Expert Panel to be a mutational hotspot or domain of MAP2K1 (PM1; PMID 29493581). A different pathogenic missense variant has been previously identified at this codon of MAP2K1 which may indicate that this residue is critical to the function of the protein (PM5; ClinVar 13351). Computational prediction tools and conservation analysis suggest that the p.Tyr130Cys variant may impact the protein (PP3). In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as likely pathogenic for RASopathies in an autosomal dominant manner. RASopathy-specific ACMG/AMP criteria applied (PMID:29493581): PM6, PM5, PM2, PM1, PP3, PP2.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000037596 SCV000061255 pathogenic Cardio-facio-cutaneous syndrome 2012-03-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Tyr130His variant has been reported in one individual with clinical features of Cardio-facio-cutaneous syndrome and was shown to have occurred de novo (Dent ici 2009). In addition, Tyr130Cys and Tyr130Asn have been reported in several i ndividuals with CFC and tyrosine at position 130 represents the most commonly mu tated amino acid in MEK1 (Gripp 2007, Rodriguez-Viciana 2006, Dentici 2009, Naru mi 2007, Schulz 2008). In summary, this variant meets our criteria to be classi fied as pathogenic ( The presence of a heterozygo us pathogenic variant in MEK1 is consistent with a diagnosis of cardio-facio-cut aneous syndrome but this information should be reconciled with the complete clin ical history of this individual.

ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics,ARUP Laboratories RCV001286663 SCV001473272 pathogenic none provided 2019-09-12 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The MAP2K1 c.388T>C; p.Tyr130His variant (rs397516793) is reported in the literature in individuals affected with cardio-facio-cutaneous (CFC) syndrome, including at least one de novo occurence (Dentici 2009). This variant is reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 40747), and is absent from general population databases (Exome Variant Server, Genome Aggregation Database), indicating it is not a common polymorphism. The tyrosine at codon 130is highly conserved, and computational analyses (SIFT, PolyPhen-2) predict that this variant is deleterious. Additionally, tyrosine 130 is considered a mutational hotspot (Bromberg-White 2012), and other variants at this codon (c.389A>G; p.Tyr130Cys, c.388T>A; p.Tyr130Asn) have been reported in individuals with CFC syndrome and are considered pathogenic (Dentici 2009, Gripp 2007, Rodriguez-Viciana 2008). In vitro functional analyses demonstrate that the p.Tyr130His variant leads to overactivation of the MAP2K1 protein (Hao 2008). Based on available information, the p.Tyr130His variant is considered to be pathogenic. References: Bromberg-White JL et al. MEK genomics in development and disease.
