GeneDx RCV000188000 SCV000241603 uncertain significance not provided 2012-08-31 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Asp815Tyr (GAT>TAT):c.2443 G>T in exon 15 of the KCNQ3 gene (NM_004519.2) The Asp815Tyr missense change has not been published as a mutation, nor has it been reported as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. The NHLBI ESP Exome Variant Project has not identified Asp815Tyr in approximately 6,500 individuals of European or African American ethnicity, indicating that it is not a common benign variant in these populations. This amino acid substitution is non-conservative, as a negatively charged Aspartic acid residue is replaced by a uncharged Tyrosine residue. Asp815Tyr alters a conserved position in the C-terminal region of the protein, and multiple in silico algorithms predict it is damaging to the structure and/or function of the KCNQ3 protein. However, to our knowledge other missense mutations have not been previously reported near Asp815Tyr. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether Asp815Tyr is a disease-causing mutation or a rare benign variant. The variant is found in INFANT-EPI panel(s).
Invitae RCV000647887 SCV000769691 uncertain significance Benign familial neonatal seizures 2018-11-29 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces aspartic acid with tyrosine at codon 815 of the KCNQ3 protein (p.Asp815Tyr). The aspartic acid residue is moderately conserved and there is a large physicochemical difference between aspartic acid and tyrosine. This variant is present in population databases (rs530506549, ExAC 0.03%). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with KCNQ3-related disease. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 205994). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function do not agree on the potential impact of this missense change (SIFT: "Deleterious"; PolyPhen-2: "Probably Damaging"; Align-GVGD: "Class C15"). In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
