GeneDx RCV000485681 SCV000568403 uncertain significance not provided 2016-02-17 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted BRCA1 c.4997A>G at the cDNA level, p.Tyr1666Cys (Y1666C) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Tyrosine to a Cysteine (TAC>TGC). This variant, previously published as BRCA1 5116A>G using alternate nomenclature, has been reported in at least one individual with early-onset breast cancer (Haitian 2008). BRCA1 Tyr1666Cys was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, suggesting it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Since Tyrosine and Cysteine differ in polarity, charge, size or other properties, this is considered a non-conservative amino acid substitution. BRCA1 Tyr1666Cys occurs at a position that is not conserved and is located within the DNA binding domain as well as a region known to interact with multiple other proteins (Narod 2004, Paul 2014). In silico analyses are inconsistent regarding the effect this variant may have on protein structure and function. Based on currently available evidence, it is unclear whether BRCA1 Tyr1666Cys is a pathogenic or benign variant. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.
