Invitae RCV000470638 SCV000547920 likely pathogenic Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, type 2 2019-12-18 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces threonine with methionine at codon 236 of the MFN2 protein (p.Thr236Met). The threonine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between threonine and methionine. This variant is present in population databases at a very low frequency (rs773159585, ExAC <0.01%). This variant has been reported in individual(s) affected with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (PMID: 15549395, Invitae). This variant has also been reported to segregate with disease in an affected family (PMID: 25403865). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 217165). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function do not agree on the potential impact of this missense change (SIFT: "Deleterious"; PolyPhen-2: "Possibly Damaging"; Align-GVGD: "Class C0"). In addition, algorithms developed to predict the effect of sequence changes on mRNA splicing suggest that this variant may alter mRNA splicing, but this prediction has not been confirmed by published transcriptional studies. In summary, this is a rare missense change that has been reported in individuals affected with CMT2 and that segregates with disease in an affected family. For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Likely Pathogenic.
