Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000824757 SCV000711751 likely pathogenic Hereditary ataxia 2016-10-28 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Arg272Cys variant in SACS has been reported in 2 individuals with ataxia a nd segregated with the disease in 3 affected individuals from each family. Affec ted members from one of the families were homozygous whereas affected individual s from the other family were compound heterozygous (Guernsey 2010), while unaffe cted individuals were all heterozygous or did not have the p.Arg272Cys variant. The variant has been identified in 1/8600 European American chromosomes by the N HLBI Exome Sequencing Project and was absent from >60,000 individuals in the ExA C database (;; dbSNP rs374128662). Although this variant has been seen in the general populatio n, its frequency is low enough to be consistent with a recessive carrier frequen cy. Computational prediction tools and conservation analysis suggest that the p. Arg272Cys variant may impact the protein, though this information is not predict ive enough to determine pathogenicity. In summary, although additional studies a re required to fully establish its clinical significance, the p.Arg272Cys varian t is likely pathogenic.
