Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000609278 SCV000710859 pathogenic Rare genetic deafness 2016-11-30 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Val13fs variant in GJB2, also reported as c.35dupG or c.35insG, has been r eported in >5 individuals with hearing loss who were compound heterozygous for a second pathogenic variant in GJB2 (Estivill 1998, Huang 2014, Snoeckx 2005, Tsu kada 2010). It has been identified in 6/250260 of the total chromosomes in the genome Aggregation Database (, dbSNP rs39812381 4). This low frequency in the general population is consistent with the carrier frequency for autosomal recessive hearing loss. This variant is predicted to ca use a frameshift, which alters the protein?s amino acid sequence beginning at po sition 13 and leads to a premature termination codon 35 amino acids downstream. In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for autos omal recessive hearing loss based on the predicted impact to the protein and mul tiple previously reported affected compound heterozygotes.

Truncations downstream of this position have been classified as pathogenic by our laboratory. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 2.4e-05 in 249362 control chromosomes (gnomAD). c.35dupG has been reported in the literature in several individuals affected with Autosomal Recessive Non-Syndromic Hearing Loss (e.g. Rabionet_2000, D'Andrea_2002, Dai_2009, Hjelm_2010, Godbole_2010, Bazazzadegan_2012, Usami_2012, Banjara_2015, Liu_2020). These data indicate that the variant is very likely to be associated with disease. To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. Eight other clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as pathogenic.

Invitae RCV000711350 SCV001400140 pathogenic not provided 2020-08-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change results in a premature translational stop signal in the GJB2 gene (p.Val13Cysfs*35). While this is not anticipated to result in nonsense mediated decay, it is expected to disrupt the last 214 amino acids of the GJB2 protein. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has been observed to segregate with deafness in a family and it has been reported to be in combination with another GJB2 variant in unrelated individuals affected with deafness (PMID: 23638949, 11439000, 24503448, 18519481, 19366456, 20497192). This variant is also known as 35insG in the literature. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 94392). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
