Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000190618 SCV000245654 likely pathogenic Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, demyelinating, type 4F 2014-08-06 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Asp765ThrfsX10 variant in PRX has been reported in one compound heterozygous individual with peripheral neuropathy (Boerkoel 2011). Data from large population studies is insufficient to assess the frequency of this variant. This variant is predicted to cause a frameshift, which alters the protein’s amino acid sequence beginning at position 765 and leads to a premature termination codon 10 amino acids downstream. This premature termination codon occurs in the last exon and therefore may escape nonsense mediated decay (NMD), resulting in a truncated protein. Importantly, several other truncating variants have been identified downstream of this position in several individuals with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4F (Boerkoel 2011, Kijima 2004, Marchesi 2010, Sivera 2013) indicating truncating variants in the last exon of PRX are not tolerated. In summary, this variant is likely pathogenic, though additional studies are required to fully establish its clinical significance (
