G1706 is a highly conserved residue located at the interface between the two BRCT domains, which forms the binding pocket for the peptide and functional studies have shown G1706A may be mildly destablizing (Lee_CR_2010); however, this finding was in contrast to Lovelock et al 2006, showing no change in stability. Regardless, the implications of this possible reduction in protein stability in cancer are not known. 4/5 in-silico tools predict a pathogenic outcome. Contrary to in silico and the conflicting stability assay results, multiple other functional assays from independent labs show the variant to have similar activity compared to WT, including, subcellular localization, transcriptional transactivation, centrosome amplification, binding activity, as well as splicing/transcription analysis via patient mRNA (Lovelock_2006, Campos_2003, Lee_CR_2010).The variant was observed in the large and broad cohorts of the ExAC project at an allele frequency of 0.004% which does not exceed the maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic variant in BRCA1 (0.10%). The variant has been reported in the literature in affected individuals, without strong evidence for causality (i.e. co-segregation with disease). The variant has been reported in databases and publications to co-occur in patients with pathogenic variants including 3 patients who also carry BRCA1 c.3049G>T (p.Glu1017X; UMD), 1 patient with BRCA2 c.IVS2+2T>C (c.67+2T>C; UMD), 1 patient with BRCA2 c.51_52delAC (p.Arg18LeufsX12; UMD) and 1 patient with BRCA1 c.5263insC (p.Gln1756fs; Carraro_2013). Additionally, the variant was reported to not segregate with disease in multiple pedigrees, including one family with one affected individual without the variant as well as a second family with two unaffected variant carriers (ages 70 and 90; Lovelock_2006). In another family, the affected proband was positive for the variant, but the variant was not inherited from the cancer affected maternal side of the family (fathers side had no cancer history; Lovelock_2006). Furthermore, multiple reputable clinical labs have classified the variant as likely benign/benign. Therefore, due to the lack of co-segregation of the variant with disease, the co-occurrence of the variant with pathogenic variants in multiple patients, and functional assays showing similar activity to WT BRCA1, this variant has been classified as a benign variant.

The variant was also identified in dbSNP (ID: rs80356860) with a minor allele frequency of 0.0002 (1000 Genomes Project), LOVD, the ClinVar database (classified as a Likely Benign variant by the Sharing Clinical Reports Project, derived from Myriad reports), the BIC database (6X with unknown clinical importance), and UMD (28X as a UV variant). The variant was also identified by the Exome Variant Server project in 1 of 8600 European American alleles (frequency: 0.0001), although this low number of observations and low frequency is not substantive enough to determine the prevalence of the variant in the general population and its relationship to disease.In the UMD database, this variant has been identified in three individuals with a second pathogenic BRCA1 and BRCA2 variants (c.3049G>T (p.Glu1017X) ; c.IVS2+2T>C (c.67+2T>C), thereby increasing the likelihood that this variant does not have clinical significance. The p.Gly1706 residue is conserved across mammals and lower organisms, and computational analyses (PolyPhen-2, SIFT, AlignGVGD, BLOSUM, MutationTaster) suggest that the p.Gly1706 variant may impact the protein. However, this information is not predictive enough to assume pathogenicity. In addition, several functional assays that examined the variant's protein stability, transcriptional transactivation, and subcellular localization predict this variant to be nonpathogenic (Lee 2010, Lovelock 2006, Williams 2003). In summary, the clinical significance of this variant cannot be determined with certainty at this time, although we would lean towards a more benign role for this variant. This variant is classified as Predicted Benign.
