GeneDx RCV000182584 SCV000234936 pathogenic not provided 2018-12-17 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This pathogenic variant is denoted RET c.2410G>A at the cDNA level, p.Val804Met (V804M) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Valine to a Methionine (GTG>ATG). This variant has been reported to segregate with medullary thyroid cancer in several large families and has also been identified in other unrelated individuals with familial medullary thyroid carcinoma (FMTC) or multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A (MEN2A) (Fink 1996, Feldman 2000, Gibelin 2004, Recasens 2007, Shifrin 2009, Griffith 2010, Basaran 2015). In vitro focus formation studies indicate that V804M results in increased transforming activity over wild type (Cosci 2011). RET Val804Met was observed at an allele frequency of 0.02% (7/33,678) in individuals of Latino ancestry in large population cohorts (Lek 2016). This variant is located in the tyrosine kinase domain (Garcia-Barcelo 2004). In silico analysis, which includes protein predictors and evolutionary conservation, supports that this variant does not alter protein structure/function. Based on currently available evidence, we consider this variant to be pathogenic.

Invitae RCV000148773 SCV000290546 pathogenic Multiple endocrine neoplasia, type 2 2019-01-05 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces valine with methionine at codon 804 of the RET protein (p.Val804Met). The valine residue is highly conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between valine and methionine. This variant is present in population databases (rs79658334, ExAC 0.03%). This variant has been reported to segregate with medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) in several families with reduced penetrance compared to other pathogenic variants in the RET gene (PMID: 8797874, 9452077, 10876191, 25501606, 19958926, 11114642, 12019403, 17895320, 25440022). It is referred to by the American Thyroid Association as a Level A variant, representing the lowest MTC risk group of RET variants (PMID: 25810047). The cumulative lifetime risk for MTC in individuals harboring this variant has been calculated to be 17% by age 40, 31% by age 50, 67% by age 60, and 87% by age 70 (PMID: 24617864). Notably, this variant is not typically associated with pheochromocytoma, parathyroid adenoma or hyperparathyroidism. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 37102). Experimental studies have shown that this missense change significantly increases cell viability, migration and tyrosine kinase activity of the RET protein (PMID: 21711375, 20039896). In addition, this missense variant confers resistance to selective kinase inhibitors (PMID: 15184865). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.

Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000586783 SCV000699459 pathogenic MEN2 phenotype: Unclassified 2017-08-03 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: The RET c.2410G>A (p.Val804Met) variant involves the alteration of a conserved nucleotide. 3/4 in silico tools predict a damaging outcome for this variant (SNPsandGO not captured due to low reliability index). This variant was found in 13/63744 control chromosomes at a frequency of 0.0002039. This variant has been reported to have a variable penetrance as the most frequently altered codon in multiple patients with features of FMTC (Familial Medullary Thyroid Cancer) and CCH (C-cell hyperplasia). It must be noted that CCH in MEN2 patients has been implicated as the precursor of in-situ MTC. This variant has also been described in a patient with co-existing germline mutations in NF1. This patient showed features of Neurofibromatosis and CCH. In vitro studies showed that this variant had an effect on RET protein function resulting in a moderately increased transforming activity consistent with its ATA (American Thyroid Association) classification as a low risk variant. Furthermore, multiple clinical diagnostic laboratories/reputable databases classified this variant as pathogenic while acknolwdging its variable penetrance in patients with FMTC/MTC. Taken together, this variant is classified as pathogenic.
Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000148773 SCV000711346 pathogenic Multiple endocrine neoplasia, type 2 2017-05-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Val804Met variant in RET has been reported in > 6 probands with multiple e ndocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2), occurring de novo in at least one of these ind ividuals, and segregated with disease in over 25 affected relatives from 5 affec ted families (for examples, see Kasprzak 2001, Shifrin 2009, Shifrin 2010, Nakao 2013, Kihara 2014, Ercolino 2014). The majority of individuals with this varian t have familial medullary thyroid carcinoma, although at least 2 individuals wer e diagnosed with MEN2B. In vitro functional studies provide some evidence that t his variant may impact protein function (Machens 2011, Castellone 2010). The p.V al804Met variant has been classified by the American Thyroid Association as impa rting a moderate risk to developing aggressive medullary thyroid carcinoma (Well s 2015). It has also been reported by other clinical laboratories in ClinVar (Va riation ID #37102). In addition, this variant has been identified in 21/116790 o f European chromosomes by the Genome Aggregation Consortium (gnomAD, http://gnom; dbSNP rs79658334). In summary, this variant meets criteri a to be classified as pathogenic for MEN2 in an autosomal dominant manner based on presence in multiple affected individuals and segregation studies.

This variant was reported in patients and segregating in multiple families with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 and familial medullary thyroid carcinoma [PMID 8797874, 23468374, 23341727, 20369307, 19958926, 20494215]. In vitro analysis showed that this variant affect the function of the RET protein [PMID 21810974]. A different nucleotide change (c.2410G>C), affecting the same amino acid (p.Val804Leu) has also been reported in a patient with multiple endocrine neoplasia 2 [PMID 14718397]. This variant is highly conserved and while not validated for clinical use, computer-based algorithms predict this p.Val804Met change to be deleterious. This variant has been observed in 13 heterozygous individuals in the ExAC database ( It is thus classified as pathogenic.
