Ambry Genetics RCV000163489 SCV000214046 likely benign Hereditary cancer-predisposing syndrome 2015-07-17 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This alteration is classified as likely benign based on a combination of the following: population frequency, intact protein function, lack of segregation with disease, co-occurrence, RNA analysis, in silico models, amino acid conservation, lack of disease association in case-control studies, and/or the mechanism of disease or impacted region is inconsistent with a known cause of pathogenicity.

GeneDx RCV000481620 SCV000570709 uncertain significance not provided 2018-03-05 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant is denoted BRCA1 c.564A>G at the DNA level. It is silent at the coding level, preserving a Glutamic Acid at codon 188. In silico analyses, which include splice predictors and evolutionary conservation, are uninformative in their assessment as to whether or not the variant is damaging. Using alternate nomenclature, this variant would be defined as BRCA1 683A>G. This variant has not, to our knowledge, been published in the literature as pathogenic or benign. BRCA1 c.564A>G was observed at an allele frequency of 0.007% (8/111646 alleles) in individuals of European (Non-Finnish) ancestry in large population cohorts (Lek 2016). Based on currently available evidence, it is unclear whether BRCA1 c.564A>G is a pathogenic or benign variant. We consider it to be a variant of uncertain significance.

Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV000779908 SCV000916818 likely benign not specified 2019-08-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: BRCA1 c.564A>G alters a non-conserved nucleotide resulting in a synonymous change. 5/5 computational tools predict no significant impact on normal splicing. However, these predictions have yet to be confirmed by functional studies. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 3.2e-05 in 251252 control chromosomes (gnomAD). The available data on variant occurrences in the general population are insufficient to allow any conclusion about variant significance. To our knowledge, no occurrence of c.564A>G in individuals affected with Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer and no experimental evidence demonstrating its impact on protein function have been reported. This variant was found in one healthy older woman in a reputed germline gnomic database (FLOSSIES). Six clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation (1x VUS, 5x Likely benign). Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as likely benign.
