GeneDx RCV000658471 SCV000780243 uncertain significance not provided 2018-06-01 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing A variant of uncertain significance has been identified in the TGFBR1 gene. The c.1338_1339delTG variant has notbeen published as pathogenic or been reported as benign to our knowledge, and is not observed in large populationcohorts (Lek et al., 2016). The c.1338_1339delTG variant creates a premature termination codon in exon 8, thepenultimate exon of the TGFBR1 gene, which is predicted to result in a premature truncation of the protein with lossof the last 58 amino acids. However, in the absence of functional studies, the physiological consequence of this variantcannot be precisely determined. No other nonsense or frameshift variants downstream of the c.1338_1339delTGvariant have been reported to our knowledge in association with LDS. The majority of pathogenic variants inTGFBR1 reported in association with Loeys-Dietz syndrome/TAAD are missense changes in the kinase domain(exons 4-9) which lead to perturbation in TGF-beta signaling (Stheneur et al. 2008; Loeys et al., 2006). Of note,haploinsufficiency in TGFBR1 has been reported in association with Ferguson-Smith disease, also known as multipleself-healing squamous epithelioma (MSSE) (Goudie et al., 2011).Thus, additional evidence such as observation in a significant number of affected individuals or segregation data isneeded to definitively determine the pathogenicity of this variant.
