GeneDx RCV000334260 SCV000329750 pathogenic not provided 2016-03-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The G2053V variant in the COL6A3 gene has been reported previously in the heterozygous state, in one individual with a clinical diagnosis of autosomal dominant Bethlem myopathy, characterized by hypotonia, congenital hip dysplasia, motor delays, muscle weakness, finger contractures, distal laxity, moderate respiratory insufficiency and walker-dependent ambulation (Tagliavini et al., 2014). A second, male patient, reported by Butterfield et al., (2013), harbored the heterozygous G2053V variant with an intermediate phenotype of congenital hypotonia, keloids, elevated creatinine kinase and contractures in the elbow, wrist, fingers, knee and ankle joints. The G2053V variant was not observed in approximately 6500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. The G2053V variant is a conservative amino acid substitution, which is not likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues share similar properties. This substitution occurs at a position that is conserved across species, affecting the Glycine residue of the triple-helical region containing Gly-X-Y repeats. In silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. A different missense variant at the same codon (G2053C), and another in a nearby residue (G2056R), have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with COL6A3-related disorders (Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Therefore, we interpret G2053V as a pathogenic variant.
