GeneDx RCV000058928 SCV000589336 pathogenic not provided 2019-01-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.2204+6 T>C pathogenic splice site variant in the IKBKAP gene has been previously reported as a founder mutation in the Ashkenazi Jewish population with a reported carrier frequency of 1 in 36 individuals (Slaugenhaupt et al., 2001). Functional studies in a mouse model show that c.2204+6 T>C causes alternative splicing in specific tissues and results in the skipping of exon 20 in the brain and other neuronal tissue (Bochner et al., 2013). Therefore, c.2204+6 T>C is interpreted to be a pathogenic variant.
Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000006458 SCV000916278 pathogenic Familial dysautonomia 2018-11-30 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The IKBKAP c.2204+6T>C variant, also referred to as IVS20+6T>C, is a well-known pathogenic variant for familial dysautonomia (FD). The carrier frequency of this variant is 3.2% in FD patients of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, accounting for approximately 99% of disease alleles in this ethnic group (Dong et al. 2002; Shohat et al. 2014). In one study the c.2204+6T>C variant was found in 38 homozygotes and 2 compound heterozygotes all affected with familial dysautonomia (Anderson et al. 2001). The c.2204+6T>C variant has been reported at a frequency of 0.013900 in the Ashkenazi Jewish population of the Genome Aggregation Database. The c.2204+6T>C variant has been shown to affect mRNA splicing and cause tissue-specific skipping of exon 20, which leads to changes in neuronal gene expression and development (Slaugenhaupt et al. 2001; Anderson et al. 2001; Boone et al. 2012). Based on the collective evidence, the c.2204+6T>C variant is classified as pathogenic for familial dysautonomia. This variant was observed by ICSL as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population.

Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000006458 SCV000698209 pathogenic Familial dysautonomia 2017-08-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: The IKBKAP c.2204+6T>C variant involves the alteration of a conserved intronic nucleotide. MutationTaster predicts a damaging outcome for this variant. 4/5 splice prediction tools predict no significant impact on normal splicing. However, multiple splicing studies have shown that this variant causes skipping of exon 20 (Slaugenhaupt_2001; Anderson_2001). This variant was found in 93/122048 control chromosomes at a frequency of 0.000762, which does not exceed the estimated maximal expected allele frequency of a pathogenic IKBKAP variant (0.001838). The variant is a common pathogenic variant found in the Askenazi Jewish population as a founder mutation. A carrier rate as high as 1 in 32 has been reported in this population (Dong_2002). In addition, multiple clinical diagnostic laboratories/reputable databases classified this variant as pathogenic. Taken together, this variant is classified as pathogenic.
Invitae RCV000058928 SCV000218960 pathogenic not provided 2018-12-11 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change falls in intron 20 of the IKBKAP mRNA. It does not directly change the encoded amino acid sequence of the IKBKAP protein. This variant is present in population databases (rs111033171, ExAC 0.1%). This variant is a common pathogenic sequence change among individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry (PMID: 11179021, 11179008, 12116234). The carrier frequency of this is 1/32 (3.2%) in individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry, accounting for >99% of FD cases among the Ashkenazi Jewish population (PMID: 12116234, 20301359). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 6085). Experimental studies have shown that this variant affects mRNA splicing causing tissue-specific skipping of exon 20, leading to changes in neuronal gene expression and development (PMID: 11179008, 11179021, 22190446, 23515154). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000006458 SCV000712784 pathogenic Familial dysautonomia 2017-01-17 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The c.2204+6T>C variant (NM_003640.3 c.2204+6T>C) in IKBKAP has been reported in several individuals with familial dysautonomia and is a founder mutation in the Ashkenazi Jewish population (Slaugenhaupt 2001, Anderson 2001). This variant ha s been identified in 79/66542 of European chromosomes by the Exome Aggregation C onsortium (ExAC, http://exac.broadinstitute.org; dbSNP rs111033171). Although th is variant has been seen in the general population, its frequency is low enough to be consistent with a recessive carrier frequency. This variant is located in the 5' splice region and was demonstrated to lead to aberrant splicing in vitro (Ibrahim 2007). In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as path ogenic for familial dysautonomia in an autosomal recessive manner based upon its biallelic occurrence in cases and demonstrated impact on splicing.
