It is reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 158605), and observed in the general population databases at a frequency of 0.003 percent (8/276604 alleles; Genome Aggregation Database). This variant induces an early termination codon and is predicted to result in a truncated protein or absent transcript, and is considered pathogenic.

Invitae RCV000593364 SCV000933879 pathogenic not provided 2018-08-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change results in a premature translational stop signal in the GJB2 gene (p.Trp44*). While this is not anticipated to result in nonsense mediated decay, it is expected to disrupt the last 187 amino acids of the GJB2 protein. This variant is present in population databases (rs104894407, ExAC 0.06%). This variant has been observed in many individuals affected with non-syndromic hearing loss and to segregate with non-syndromic hearing loss in families (PMID: 26553399, 26346709, 15070423, 10376574). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 158605). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
GeneDx RCV000593364 SCV001168433 pathogenic not provided 2019-02-19 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The W44X nonsense variant has been reported previously as heterozygous with other GJB2 variants in association with hearing loss (Green et al., 1999; Roux et al., 2004; Mirna et al., 2015). This variant is predicted to cause loss of normal protein function through protein truncation. The variant is observed in 5/24026 (0.0208%) alleles from individuals of African background in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016). Another variant leading to the same nonsense change (c.131 G>A) has been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with hearing loss (Stenson et al., 2014). We interpret the W44X variant as pathogenic.
