GeneDx RCV000235909 SCV000293093 uncertain significance not provided 2015-08-26 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R384W variant has previously been reported in a single individual with moderate axonal and demyelinating sensorimotor neuropathy with normal MRI of the optic nerve and normal visual evoked potential (Auranen et al., 2013). It is unclear if this variant segregates with disease in this family; this individual's unaffected father did not harbor the R384W variant, but the unaffected mother was not evaluated for this variant (Auranen et al., 2013). The R384W variant 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 R384W 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 not conserved. In silico analysis is inconsistent in its predictions as to whether or not the variant is damaging to the protein structure/function. Missense variants in nearby residues (M376V/T/R/I, S378P, A382P, A383V, C390R/F) have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with Charcot-Marie Tooth neuropathy type 2 or early onset axonal neuropathy (Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether this variant is a pathogenic variant or a rare benign variant.
