Invitae RCV003620251 SCV004533526 uncertain significance Cataract 1 multiple types 2023-07-18 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing 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. This variant disrupts a region of the GJA8 protein in which other variant(s) (p.Arg425*) have been observed in individuals with GJA8-related conditions (PMID: 25148791). This suggests that this is a clinically significant region of the protein, and that variants that disrupt it are likely to be disease-causing. This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals affected with GJA8-related conditions. This variant is present in population databases (rs782147633, gnomAD 0.08%). This sequence change creates a premature translational stop signal (p.Glu382*) in the GJA8 gene. While this is not anticipated to result in nonsense mediated decay, it is expected to disrupt the last 52 amino acid(s) of the GJA8 protein.
