Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000038840 SCV000062518 uncertain significance not specified 2012-02-07 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Arg285His variant (VCL) has not been reported in the literature, but has bee n identified in one proband with HCM (this individual's son) by our laboratory. Arginine (Arg) at position 285 is not completely conserved across different spec ies, increasing the likelihood that a change would be tolerated. Computational a nalyses (biochemical amino acid properties, AlignGVGD, PolyPhen2, and SIFT) also suggest that the Arg285His variant may not impact the protein, though this info rmation is not predictive enough to rule out pathogenicity. Variants in the VCL gene have been found in individuals with HCM as well as DCM (Olson 2002, Vasile 2006). However, the number of studies is still small and the contribution of VCL to HCM and DCM, as well as the types of variants that cause disease, have not b een well established. Additional information is needed to fully assess the clini cal significance of this variant.
