GeneDx RCV000195483 SCV000251714 likely pathogenic not provided 2014-05-02 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Arg300Cys: c.898 C>T (NM_014874.3). The R300C variant has not been published as a mutation, nor has it been reported as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. The R300C variant was not observed in approximately 6500 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 R300C 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. In silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. A missense mutation in a nearby residue (G298R) has been reported in association with Charcot-Marie- Tooth neuropathy type 2A, supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Therefore, R300C is interpreted to be a strong candidate for a disease-causing mutation. The variant is found in MITONUC-MITOP panel(s).
Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV001101673 SCV001258300 uncertain significance Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, type 2 2018-01-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed in the ICSL laboratory as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. It had not been previously curated by ICSL or reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD: prior to June 1st, 2018), and was therefore a candidate for classification through an automated scoring system. Utilizing variant allele frequency, disease prevalence and penetrance estimates, and inheritance mode, an automated score was calculated to assess if this variant is too frequent to cause the disease. Based on the score, this variant could not be ruled out of causing disease and therefore its association with disease required further investigation. A literature search was performed for the gene, cDNA change, and amino acid change (if applicable). No publications were found based on this search. This variant was therefore classified as a variant of unknown significance for this disease.
