Invitae RCV000048585 SCV000076598 uncertain significance Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome 2019-12-12 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces arginine with threonine at codon 1507 of the BRCA1 protein (p.Arg1507Thr). The arginine residue is moderately conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between arginine and threonine. This variant is present in population databases (rs80357470, ExAC 0.01%). This variant has been observed in an individual affected with prostate cancer (PMID: 29368341). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 41825). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function (SIFT, PolyPhen-2, Align-GVGD) all suggest that this variant is likely to be tolerated, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies and their clinical significance is uncertain. In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.

GeneDx RCV000034751 SCV000569833 uncertain significance not provided 2016-11-01 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted BRCA1 c.4520G>C at the cDNA level, p.Arg1507Thr (R1507T) at the protein level, and results in the change of an Arginine to a Threonine (AGG>ACG). Using alternate nomenclature, this variant would be defined as BRCA1 4639G>C. This variant was observed in 1/572 individuals with atherosclerosis, with no specific information about cancer history (Johnston 2012). BRCA1 Arg1507Thr 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 Arginine and Threonine differ in some properties, this is considered a semi-conservative amino acid substitution. BRCA1 Arg1507Thr occurs at a position that is not conserved and is located in a region known for interaction with multiple proteins (Narod 2004, Clark 2012). 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 Arg1507Thr is a pathogenic or benign variant. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.

Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV001175600 SCV001339247 uncertain significance not specified 2020-03-03 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: BRCA1 c.4520G>C (p.Arg1507Thr) results in a non-conservative amino acid change in the encoded protein sequence. 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 2.8e-05 in 251338 control chromosomes (gnomAD). The available data on variant occurrences in the general population are insufficient to allow any conclusion about variant significance. c.4520G>C has been reported in the literature in individuals affected with prostate cancer (IsaacssonVelho_2018) and in at least one individual undergoing genetic testing for Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer (Judkins_2005). The variant was also reported in an individual from a cohort selected for atherosclerosis phenotypes (Johnston_2012). These reports do not provide strong evidence for causality and thus do not provide unequivocal conclusions about association of the variant with Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer. Several publications report experimental evidence evaluating an impact on protein function. No damaging effects for the variant were observed on transcriptional activity as measured in assays using yeast cells (Woods_2016, Fernandes_2019). Four clinical diagnostic laboratories and one expert panel have submitted clinical significance assesments for this variant to ClinVar (evaluation after 2014) and cite the variant as uncertain significance (n=4) and benign (n=1). Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as VUS-possibly benign.
