Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Mass General Brigham Personalized Medicine RCV000215444 SCV000271373 pathogenic Rare genetic deafness 2016-03-22 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.His100Tyr variant in GJB2 has been reported in >15 individuals with hearin g loss including >10 in the compound heterozygous state (Green 1999, Prasad 2000 , Pandya 2003, Feldmann 2004, Snoeckx 2005, Propst 2006, Tang 2006, Pollack 2007 , Putcha 2007, Siem 2010, Gordon 2011, Schimmenti 2011, Lipan 2011, Schimmenti 2 011). It has been identified in 3/66672 European chromosomes by the Exome Aggreg ation Consortium (ExAC, http://exac.broadinstitute.org; dbSNP rs143343083). Addi tional amino acid changes at this location (p.His100Pro, p.His100Leu, and p.His1 00Gln) have been reported in individuals with hearing loss, suggesting that a ch ange at this location may not be tolerated (Gardner 2006, Snoeckx 2005, Bartsch 2010). Computational prediction tools and conservation analysis suggest that thi s variant may impact the protein. In summary, this variant meets our criteria to be classified as pathogenic for hearing loss in an autosomal recessive manner.
ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics,ARUP Laboratories RCV000798119 SCV000603836 pathogenic not provided 2020-10-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The GJB2 c.298C>T; p.His100Tyr variant (rs143343083) has been reported multiple times in the literature in individuals with hearing loss who were compound heterozygous with another pathogenic GJB2 variant (Dodson 2011, Green 1999, Putcha 2007, Siemering 2006, Snoeckx 2005). Additionally, functional studies suggest the variant protein is unable to function properly as a homotypic gap junction (Kim 2016). This variant has also been reported to the ClinVar database (Variation ID: 158607). It is found in the general population with an overall allele frequency of 0.001% (3/250900 alleles) in the Genome Aggregation Database. The histidine at codon 100 is highly conserved, and computational analyses (SIFT, PolyPhen-2) predict that this variant is deleterious. Based on available information, this variant is considered to be pathogenic. REFERENCES Dodson KM et al. Vestibular dysfunction in DFNB1 deafness. Am J Med Genet A. 2011 May;155A(5):993-1000.

Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV000169347 SCV000919427 pathogenic Autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss 1A 2017-09-11 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: The GJB2 c.298C>T (p.His100Tyr) variant causes a missense change involving the alteration of a conserved nucleotide located in the Connexin, N-terminal domain (IPR013092) (InterPro). 2/4 in silico tools predict a benign outcome for this variant (SNPsandGO not captured due to low reliability index). A functional study showed lack of hemichannel permeability/conductivity associated with this variant (Kim_2016). The variant was found in the control population dataset of ExAC in 5/121260 control chromosomes at a frequency of 0.0000412, which does not exceed the estimated maximal expected allele frequency of a pathogenic GJB2 variant (0.025). This variant was reported in multiple patients with NSHL (Putcha_2007, Feldmann_2004, Lipan_2011, Burke_2016). In addition, multiple clinical diagnostic laboratories/reputable databases classified this variant as pathogenic. Taken together, this variant is classified as pathogenic.
