GeneDx RCV000482544 SCV000567941 pathogenic not provided 2017-07-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The T158A missense variant has been previously reported as a de novo variant in a female patient with the preserved speech variant of Rett syndrome (Vacca et al., 2001). It was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. The T158A variant is a non-conservative amino acid substitution, which is likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in polarity, charge, size and/or other properties. This substitution alters a highly conserved position predicted to be within the methyl-binding domain of the MECP2 protein, and a missense variant in the same codon (T158M) as well as multiple missense pathogenic variants in nearby residues have been reported in association with Rett syndrome (RettBASE; Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Multiple functional studies suggest that T158A impairs normal protein function (Kudo et al., 2003; Agarwal et al., 2011). Therefore, we interpret T158A as a pathogenic variant.
