GeneDx RCV000413713 SCV000491827 uncertain significance not specified 2016-11-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing A variant of uncertain significance has been identified in the NOTCH1 gene. The A834G variant has not been published as a pathogenic variant, nor has it been reported as a benign variant to our knowledge. This variant was not observed in approximately 6,300 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. However, the A834G variant is a conservative amino acid substitution, which is not likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues share similar properties. Although this substitution occurs at a position that is conserved in mammals, Glycine is the wild-type amino acid at this position in at least one species. Furthermore, in silico analysis is inconsistent in its predictions as to whether or not the variant is damaging to the protein structure/function.Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether this variant is pathogenic or benign.
Invitae RCV000552895 SCV000659403 uncertain significance Adams-Oliver syndrome 5 2018-12-26 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces alanine with glycine at codon 834 of the NOTCH1 protein (p.Ala834Gly). The alanine residue is moderately conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between alanine and glycine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency) and has not been reported in the literature in individuals with a NOTCH1-related disease. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 373248). 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 tolerated, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies. In summary, this variant is a rare missense change that is not predicted to affect protein function. There is no indication that it causes disease, but the available evidence is currently insufficient to prove that conclusively. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
