GeneDx RCV000523082 SCV000617744 pathogenic not provided 2018-08-31 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R358X nonsense variant in the VRK1 gene has been previously reported in the homozygous state in multiple individuals with SMA-PCH (Farwell et al., 2015; Vinograd-Byk et al., 2015). The R358X variant has also been reported in trans with the H119R variant in siblings with adult onset SMA (Stoll et al., 2116). This pathogenic variant is predicted to cause loss of normal protein function either through protein truncation or nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Functional studies in lymphoblastoid cell lines demonstrate an extreme reduction in the mRNA and protein levels of APP (amyloid-beta precursor protein), which has a role in neuronal migration (Vinograd-Byk et al., 2015). Therefore, we interpret R358X to be a pathogenic variant.
Invitae RCV000690009 SCV000817685 pathogenic Pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 1 2018-12-31 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change creates a premature translational stop signal (p.Arg358*) in the VRK1 gene. It is expected to result in an absent or disrupted protein product. This variant is present in population databases (rs137853063, ExAC 0.005%). This variant has been observed to segregate with pontocerebellar hypoplasia in a family (PMID: 19646678), and has also been observed as homozygous or in combination with another VRK1 variant in several individuals affected with spinal muscular atrophy or complex motor and sensory axonal neuropathy plus microcephaly (PMID: 24126608, 27281532). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 7497). Loss-of-function variants in VRK1 are known to be pathogenic (PMID: 19646678). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
