GeneDx RCV000187972 SCV000241575 uncertain significance not provided 2013-07-29 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Ala348Val (GCG>GTG): c.1043 C>T in exon 6 of the KCNQ3 gene (NM_004519.2) The Ala348Val missense change has not been published as a mutation, nor has it been reported as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. It was not observed in approximately 6,200 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Ala348Val alters a conserved position in the sixth transmembrane domain of the KCNQ3 protein and another missense mutation in this region of the protein has been reported in association with benign familial neonatal seizures (Li et al., 2008). In addition, in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. However, the amino acid substitution is conservative as both Alanine and Valine are uncharged, non-polar amino acid residues. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether Ala348Val is a disease-causing mutation or a rare benign variant. The variant is found in EPILEPSY panel(s).
