GeneDx RCV000498855 SCV000589485 likely pathogenic not provided 2015-10-08 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The D47H variant in the TUBA1A gene has not been published as a pathogenic variant, nor has it been reported as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. The D47H variant 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 D47H 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 occurs at a position that is conserved across species. However, in silico analysis is inconsistent in its predictions as to whether or not the variant is damaging to the protein structure/function. Missense variants in nearby residues (E55K and T56M) have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with TUBA1A-related disorders (Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. We interpret D47H as a strong candidate for a pathogenic variant. However the possibility that D47H may be a rare benign variant cannot be excluded.
