This variant has been published as segregating with disease in multiple affected family members, and as a de novo occurence (Legius 2002 PMID:12161596, Tartaglia 2002 PMID:11992261, Kalev 2010 PMID:19768645, Begic 2014 PMID:24401936, Gelb 2015 PMID:20301557). This variant is not present in large control databases. This variant is present in ClinVar, with several labs classifying this variant as pathogenic (Variation ID:13328). Evolutionary conservation and computational predictive tools support that this variant may impact the protein. In addition, functional studies (including a drosophila model) have shown a deleterious effect of this variant (Kontaridis 2006 PMID: 16377799, Martinelli 2008 PMID:18372317, Oishi 2009 PMID:18849586). In summary, this variant is classified as pathogenic.

GeneDx RCV000077859 SCV000057409 pathogenic not provided 2019-01-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Y279C pathogenic variant in the PTPN11 gene has been reported previously in many individuals with a clinical diagnosis of Noonan Syndrome with multiple lentigines (formerly known as LEOPARD syndrome) and Noonan syndrome, both in familial and sporadic cases (Legius et al., 2002; Digilio et al., 2002; Tartaglia et al., 2002; Keren et al., 2004; Sarkozy et al., 2004). The Y279C variant has been noted to be pathogenic by multiple other clinical laboratories in the ClinVar database (Landrum et al., 2014) and is not observed in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016). The Y279C 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. Moreover, the Y279C pathogenic variant is located within the PTP domain and functional studies suggest this variant is associated with weakened interactions between the N-SH2 and PTP domains leading to sustained RAS-ERK1/2 activation (Yu et al., 2014). Additionally, another missense variant in this same residue (Y279S) and missense variants in nearby residues (I282V, F285L, F285I, F285C, F285S) have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with PTPN11-related disorders (Stenson et al., 2014). In summary, Y279C in the PTPN11 gene is interpreted as a pathogenic variant.

The main clinical sign was myocardial hypertrophy and cardiac output deficit due to reduced LV cavity. No morphological signs of Noonan syndrome were observed. The variant was detected in combination with CBL NM_005188: exon11: c.G1754T :p.R585L variant in RAS-pathway (PMID 25731833).

Invitae RCV000033504 SCV000287695 pathogenic Rasopathy 2019-01-05 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces tyrosine with cysteine at codon 279 of the PTPN11 protein (p.Tyr279Cys). The tyrosine residue is highly conserved and there is a large physicochemical difference between tyrosine and cysteine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has been reported to segregate with Noonan syndrome with multiple lentigines (NSML; also known as LEOPARD syndrome) in a single family (PMID: 24401936) and has also been reported in many unrelated individuals with NSML (PMID: 25917897, 24820750, 22822385, 15520399, 17020470, 22681964). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 13328). Experimental studies have shown that this missense change abolishes the enzymatic activity of PTPN11 in vitro and increases the activity of AKT and mTOR in cell culture (PMID: 16377799, 16638574, 23673659, 18372317, 21339643). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000824744 SCV000200016 pathogenic Noonan syndrome with multiple lentigines; Noonan syndrome 2013-04-09 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Tyr279Cys variant in PTPN11 has previously been reported in several indivi duals with clinical features of Noonan or LEOPARD syndrome, segregated with dis ease in multiple families, and occured as a de novo variant in sporadic cases (F roster 2003, Tartaglia 2006, Martinelli 2008, Tang 2009, Digilio 2002, Kalev 200 9, Legius 2002, Legius 2002, Oishi 2009). It was absent from large population st udies. In summary, this variant meets our criteria to be classified as pathogeni c for Noonan syndrome and LEOPARD syndrome in an autosomal dominant manner (http ://
