Cys474Arg results in a non-conservative amino acid substitution of a neutral Cysteine with a positively charged Arginine, which is likely to disrupt disulfide bonds in the DNA. This substitution occurs at a position that is well conserved across species, and consequently, in silico analysis predicts Cys474Arg is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Mutations in nearby residues (Asn478Ser, Leu486Ser) have been reported in association with TAAD, further supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. In addition, the Cys474Arg variant was not observed in approximately 6000 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. In summary, while Cys474Arg in the TGFBR1 gene is a good candidate for a disease-causing mutation, with the clinical and molecular information available at this time we cannot unequivocally determine the clinical significance of this variant. This variant was found in TAAD
