GeneDx RCV000498239 SCV000590483 uncertain significance not provided 2018-12-31 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R1944S variant of uncertain significance in the ALMS1 gene has not been published as pathogenic or been reported as benign to our knowledge. This variant is not observed in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016). The R1944S variant is a semi-conservative amino acid substitution, which may impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in some properties. However, in-silico analyses, including protein predictors and evolutionary conservation, support that this variant does not alter protein structure/function. Finally, while some missense variants have been reported in association with Alstrom syndrome, most pathogenic variants in ALMS1 reported to date are predicted to cause premature protein truncation (Marshall et al., 2012; Stenson et al., 2014). Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether this variant is pathogenic or rare benign.
