Broad Institute Rare Disease Group, Broad Institute RCV000582390 SCV001422869 uncertain significance Obesity 2020-01-22 no assertion criteria provided curation The p.Tyr21Terfs variant in MC4R has not been previously reported in individuals with obesity and has been identified in 0.007% (2/30616) of South Asian chromosomes and 0.006% (1/16150) African chromosomes by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD, http://gnomad.broadinstitute.org; dbSNP rs770293321). This variant has also been reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 492860). This variant is predicted to cause a frameshift, which alters the protein's amino acid sequence beginning at position 21 and leads to a premature termination codon at the same position. This alteration is then predicted to lead to a truncated protein since this is a single exon gene that is not predicted to undergo nonsense mediated decay. Heterozygous loss of function of the MC4R gene is an established disease mechanism in obesity. In summary, while there is some suspicion for a pathogenic role, the clinical significance of this variant is uncertain. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PVS1_moderate, PM2_supporting (Richards 2015).
