Ambry Genetics RCV000162444 SCV000212794 pathogenic Hereditary cancer-predisposing syndrome 2024-01-08 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.R217C pathogenic mutation(also known as c.649C>T), located in coding exon 7 of the SDHB gene, results from a C to T substitution at nucleotide position 649. The arginine at codon 217 is replaced by cysteine, an amino acid with highly dissimilar properties. This alteration has been identified in the germline and/or tumor of numerous individuals with paragangliomas (PGL) (Klein RD et al. Diagn Mol Pathol. 2008;17(2):94-100; Burnichon N et al. J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2009;94(8):2817-27; Pasini B et al. J. Intern. Med. 2009 Jul; 266(1):19-42; Kimura N et al. Endocr. Relat. Cancer 2014 Jun; 21(3):L13-6; Patócs A et al. Pathol. Oncol. Res. 2016 Oct;22(4):673-9; Niemeijer ND et al. Eur. J. Endocrinol., 2017 Aug;177:115-125; Andrews KA et al. J. Med. Genet., 2018 06;55:384-394; Rijken JA et al. BJS Open, 2018 Apr;2:62-69; Richter S et al. Genet. Med., 2019 03;21:705-717; Ambry Internal Data). In one study of nearly 600 patients with head and neck PGL, p.R217C was detected in two individuals, and a second alteration at the same codon, p.R217L, was detected in another individual (Neumann HP et al. Cancer Res. 2009 Apr; 69(8):3650-6). This amino acid position is highly conserved in available vertebrate species. In addition, this alteration is predicted to be deleterious by in silico analysis. Based on the supporting evidence, this alteration is interpreted as a disease-causing mutation.
Invitae RCV000539362 SCV000644763 pathogenic Gastrointestinal stromal tumor; Paragangliomas 4; Pheochromocytoma 2024-01-11 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces arginine, which is basic and polar, with cysteine, which is neutral and slightly polar, at codon 217 of the SDHB protein (p.Arg217Cys). This variant is present in population databases (rs200245469, gnomAD 0.06%). This missense change has been observed in individuals with paraganglioma-pheochromocytoma syndromes (PMID: 18753105, 19351833, 19454582, 19802898, 23735539, 24659481, 25047027, 26960314). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 183735). Advanced modeling of protein sequence and biophysical properties (such as structural, functional, and spatial information, amino acid conservation, physicochemical variation, residue mobility, and thermodynamic stability) performed at Invitae indicates that this missense variant is expected to disrupt SDHB protein function with a positive predictive value of 80%. For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.

Color Diagnostics, LLC DBA Color Health RCV000984327 SCV004362269 likely pathogenic Paragangliomas 4 2023-06-15 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This missense variant replaces arginine with cysteine at codon 217 of the SDHB protein. Computational prediction suggests that this variant may have deleterious impact on protein structure and function (internally defined REVEL score threshold >= 0.7, PMID: 27666373). Functional analysis on an immortalized cell line from a variant carrier showed reduced SDHB protein expression by western blot, inhibition of proliferation and altered metabolite profiles in metformin-treated cells (PMID: 34118692). This variant has been reported in more than 10 individuals and families affected with paraganglioma and/or pheochromocytoma (PMID: 18382370, 18753105, 19454582, 19351833, 19802898, 21561462, 24659481, 23735539, 26960314, 27573198, 29386252, 29951630, 30050099, 30201732, 31212687, 31216007, 32462735, 33748650, 34118692, 34439371, 34439168). This variant has not been identified in the general population by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD). Based on the available evidence, this variant is classified as Likely Pathogenic.
All of Us Research Program, National Institutes of Health RCV002466456 SCV004824193 likely pathogenic Hereditary pheochromocytoma-paraganglioma 2023-04-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.649C>T (p.Arg217Cys) variant in the SDHB gene is located on the exon 7 and is predicted to replace arginine with cysteine at codon 217 (p.Arg217Cys). The variant has been reported in more than 10 unrelated individuals affected with paragangliomas (PMID: 33748650, 34439371, 30658386, 16080530, 24659481, 31212687, 29386252, 29951630). Experimental study from the paraganglioma patient cells indicates that this variant promotes tumorigenesis (PMID: 34118692). The variant is reported in ClinVar as pathogenic or likely pathogenic by multiple submitters (ID: 183735). The variant is absent in the general population according to the gnomAD database. Computational prediction algorithms suggest a deleterious impact for this variant (REVEL score 0.988). Therefore, the c.649C>T (p.Arg217Cys) variant of SDHB has been classified as likely pathogenic.
