Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000155347 SCV000205033 uncertain significance not specified 2014-02-01 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Arg653Cys variant in WFS1 has not been previously reported in individuals wi th hearing loss. This variant has been identified in 0.035% (3/8600) of European American chromosomes by the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project (; dbSNP rs201064551). Computational analyses (biochemical amino ac id properties, conservation, AlignGVGD, PolyPhen2, and SIFT) do not provide stro ng support for or against an impact to the protein. In summary, additional infor mation is needed to determine the clinical significance of this variant.
GeneDx RCV000767006 SCV000252535 uncertain significance not provided 2012-12-06 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Arg653Cys (CGC>TGC):c.1957 C>T in exon 8 of the WFS1 gene (NM_006005.3). The R456H missense substitution in the WFS1 gene has been published in association with type 1 diabetes in a Japanese population where it was found at a significantly increased frequency in patients with type 1 diabetes compared to a control group (Awata et al., 2000). The amino acid change is conservative in that both Arginine and Histidine are positively charged amino acids. This change occurs at a position in the WFS1 protein that is highly conserved. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether R456H is a disease-causing mutation or a rare benign variant. The variant is found in MITONUC-MITOP panel(s).

SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics RCV000677339 SCV000803617 uncertain significance WFS1-Related Disorders 2018-05-31 criteria provided, single submitter curation This variant is interpreted as a Uncertain Significance - Conflicting Evidence, for Deafness, in Autosomal Dominant manner. The following ACMG Tag(s) were applied: PP3 => Multiple lines of computational evidence support a deleterious effect on the gene or gene product. PP1 => Cosegregation with disease in multiple affected family members in a gene definitively known to cause the disease (PMID:25388789). BS1 => Allele frequency is greater than expected for disorder.
