GeneDx RCV000197230 SCV000251709 pathogenic not provided 2018-11-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R104W missense variant in the MFN2 gene has been reported previously as a de novo substitution in association with CMT2A and neuropathy (Brockmann et al., 2008; Genari et al., 2011; Del Bo et al., 2008, Tufano et al.,2015). The R104W 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 R104W 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. Missense variants in nearby residues (A100G, T105M, T105A) have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with MFN2-related disorders (Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein.

Invitae RCV000556047 SCV000657723 pathogenic Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, type 2 2018-08-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces arginine with tryptophan at codon 104 of the MFN2 protein (p.Arg104Trp). The arginine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between arginine and tryptophan. This variant is not present in population databases (rs119103268, ExAC no frequency). This variant has been reported in the heterozygous state in many individuals affected with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2 (CMT2) or early onset hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (EOHMSN) (PMID: 18957892, 20008656, 21326314, 26382835, 25025039). In addition, this variant has been shown to arise de novo in multiple individuals affected with CMT2 or EOHMSN (PMID: 20008656, 18425620, 21840889, 21531138, 26307494) and has been reported to segregate with CMT2 in an affected family (PMID: 18946002). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 2281). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function (SIFT, PolyPhen-2, Align-GVGD) all suggest that this variant is likely to be disruptive, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies. A different missense substitution at this codon (p.Arg104Leu) has been determined to be pathogenic (PMID: 22492563). This suggests that the arginine residue is critical for MFN2 protein function and that other missense substitutions at this position may also be pathogenic. For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
