Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000586692 SCV000698234 uncertain significance not provided 2017-07-03 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: This variant involves a non-conserved nucleotide (40 nt away from exon/intron boundary) and Mutation Taster predicts the variant as polymorphism. 4/5 in silico tools via Alamut predict no significant effect on RNA splicing sites, and ESEfinder predicts a loss of binding motif for splicing enhancer SRp55. Although these predictions have yet to be functionally assessed. The variant was found in the the large control database "gnomAD" at an allele frequency of 16/243636 (0.00657%) which is less than the maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic GJB2 variant (2.6%) considering a recessive mode of inheritance. This variant was reported in hearing loss patients in both heterozygous and homozygous status and authors considered this variant with unknown clinical significance. In one unaffected relative who carried the variant of interest, a pathogenic GJB2 variant was also present. The variant has not, to our knowledge, been reported by clinical labs or reputable databases. Due to lack of clinical and functional data, this variant has been classified as a VUS.
