GeneDx RCV000193160 SCV000149857 likely benign not specified 2014-02-25 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is considered likely benign or benign based on one or more of the following criteria: it is a conservative change, it occurs at a poorly conserved position in the protein, it is predicted to be benign by multiple in silico algorithms, and/or has population frequency not consistent with disease.

Four of five in-silico tools predict a benign effect of the variant on protein function. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.0034 in 255166 control chromosomes, predominantly at a frequency of 0.0061 within the South Asian subpopulation in the gnomAD database, including 5 homozygotes. The observed variant frequency within South Asian control individuals in the gnomAD database is approximately 98-fold of the estimated maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic variant in RAD50 causing Hereditary Breast And Ovarian Cancer Syndrome phenotype (6.3e-05), strongly suggesting that the variant is a benign polymorphism found primarily in populations of South Asian origin. Further evidence in support of a benign polymorphism is provided by a recent study in Arabic individuals (a population underrepresented in publicly available databases) reporting the variant as benign based on a population frequency of >1% and its presence in the homozygous state in multiple individuals who lack the reported phenotype (Abouelhoda_2016). c.280A>C has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with Hereditary Breast And Ovarian Cancer Syndrome (e.g. Heikkinen_2003, Tommiska_2006, Young_2018) but was also reported in controls (e.g. Heikkinen_2003, Kurki_2014). In addition, one family with breast cancer history was documented with one unaffected and two affected sisters carrying the variant (Jalkh_2017). These data do not provide unequivocal conclusions about association of the variant with Hereditary Breast And Ovarian Cancer Syndrome. To our knowledge, no experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported. Five ClinVar submitters (evaluation after 2014) cite the variant as benign/likely benign and one ClinVar submitter (evaluation after 2014) cites the variant as uncertain significance. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as benign.
