GeneDx RCV000481897 SCV000569816 likely pathogenic not provided 2018-02-23 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing A variant that is likely pathogenic has been identified in the SCN8A gene. The M1869T variant has not been published as a pathogenic variant, nor has it been reported as a benign variant to our knowledge. It was not observed in approximately 6,300 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 M1869T 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. Additionally, this substitution occurs at a position that is conserved across species that is predicted to be within the C-terminal cytoplasmic domain of the SCN8A protein, and in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Furthermore, missense variants in nearby residues (E1870D, R1872W/Q) have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with SCN8A-related disorders (Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Additionally, targeted parental test results indicate this variant is assumed to be de novo. Therefore, we now interpret M1869T as a likely pathogenic variant; however, the possibility that it is benign cannot be excluded.
