GeneDx RCV000497603 SCV000589921 likely pathogenic not provided 2017-06-15 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing A likely pathogenic variant has been identified in the POMT2 gene. The Y294C variant has recently been reported in the homozygous state in multiple individuals with hypotonia, scoliosis, intellectual disability, and hyperdontia in a consanguineous family in the published literature (Riazuddin et al., 2016). It 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 Y294C 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, and in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. However, missense variants in nearby residues have not been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with POMT2-related disorders (Stenson et al., 2014). Therefore, the R294C variant is now classified as a likely pathogenic variant.
