Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000006482 SCV000245633 likely pathogenic Molybdenum cofactor deficiency, complementation group B 2014-12-29 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Lys180ArgfsX31 variant in MOCS2 has been reported in 4 individuals with clinical features of molybdenum cofactor deficiency (Reiss 1999). Three of these individuals were homozygous for this variant and one individual was compound heterozygous. This variant has also been identified in 0.01% (5/67564) of European chromosomes by the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC,; dbSNP rs398122797). Although this variant has been seen in the general population, its frequency is low enough to be consistent with a recessive carrier frequency. This nonsense variant leads to a premature termination codon at position 180. This alteration occurs within the last exon and is more likely to escape nonsense mediated decay (NMD) and result in a truncated protein. Homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the MOCS2 gene have been shown to cause molybdenum cofactor deficiency. In summary, although additional studies are required to fully establish its clinical significance, the p.Lys180ArgfsX31 variant is likely pathogenic.
