Invitae RCV000540601 SCV000630832 pathogenic Walker-Warburg congenital muscular dystrophy 2024-01-06 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces asparagine, which is neutral and polar, with aspartic acid, which is acidic and polar, at codon 463 of the FKRP protein (p.Asn463Asp). This variant is present in population databases (rs121908110, gnomAD 0.09%). This missense change has been observed in individual(s) with congenital muscular dystrophy and/or limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (PMID: 17336067; Invitae). In at least one individual the data is consistent with being in trans (on the opposite chromosome) from a pathogenic variant. It is commonly reported in individuals of Mexican ancestry (PMID: 17336067; Invitae). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 4235). Advanced modeling of protein sequence and biophysical properties (such as structural, functional, and spatial information, amino acid conservation, physicochemical variation, residue mobility, and thermodynamic stability) performed at Invitae indicates that this missense variant is expected to disrupt FKRP protein function with a positive predictive value of 95%. For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
Broad Center for Mendelian Genomics, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard RCV001254718 SCV001430793 pathogenic Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy type B5 2020-05-28 criteria provided, single submitter research The homozygous p.Asn463Asp variant in FKRP was identified by our study in an individual with muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy (PMID: 31041397). The p.Asn463Asp variant has also been reported in at least 13 additional individuals with Hispanic or Mexican ancestry and muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy, segregated with disease in 6 affected relatives from 3 families (PMID: 29065428, 31041397), and has been identified in 0.084% (27/32138) of Latino chromosomes by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD,; dbSNP rs121908110). Although this variant has been seen in the general population, its frequency is not high enough to rule out a pathogenic role. This variant has also been reported pathogenic by UChicago, EGL Genetic Diagnostics, Invitae, and OMIM in ClinVar (Variation ID: 4235). The presence of this variant in 9 affected homozygotes and in combination with a reported pathogenic variant and in 5 individuals with muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy increases the likelihood that the p.Asn463Asp variant is pathogenic (PMID: 17336067, 29065428, 31041397, 31671740). In vitro functional studies provide some evidence that the p.Asn463Asp variant may impact protein function (PMID: 31041397). However, these types of assays may not accurately represent biological function. Computational prediction tools and conservation analyses suggest that this variant may impact the protein, though this information is not predictive enough to determine pathogenicity. In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy in an autosomal recessive manner based on the occurrence of this variant with other pathogenic variants in trans, functional evidence showing an affect to protein function, and segregation among multiple families. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PM3_Strong, PS3_moderate, PP1_strong, PP3 (Richards 2015).

Women's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorp RCV003114175 SCV003801181 pathogenic Autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2023-01-28 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: FKRP c.1387A>G (p.Asn463Asp) results in a conservative amino acid change in the encoded protein sequence. Four of five in-silico tools predict a damaging effect of the variant on protein function. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.00012 in 222240 control chromosomes. This frequency is not significantly higher than expected for a pathogenic variant in FKRP causing Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy, Autosomal Recessive (0.00012 vs 0.0024), allowing no conclusion about variant significance. c.1387A>G has been reported in the literature as a frequent founder variant of Mexican origin in multiple individuals affected with Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy, Autosomal Recessive (example, PMID: 31931849, 31041397, 34653404). These data indicate that the variant is very likely to be associated with disease. To our knowledge, no variant specific experimental evidence demonstrating an impact on protein function has been reported, although in one study, all muscle biopsies from homozygous individuals available for review showed end-stage dystrophic pathology, near absence of glycosylated alpha-dystroglycan (alpha-DG) by immunofluorescence, and reduced molecular weight of alpha-DG compared with controls (PMID: 31041397). Eight clinical diagnostic laboratories have submitted clinical-significance assessments for this variant to ClinVar after 2014 without evidence for independent evaluation. All laboratories classified the variant as pathogenic/likely pathogenic. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as pathogenic.

Ambry Genetics RCV004018553 SCV005028113 pathogenic Cardiovascular phenotype 2024-02-23 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.N463D pathogenic mutation (also known as c.1387A>G), located in coding exon 1 of the FKRP gene, results from an A to G substitution at nucleotide position 1387. The asparagine at codon 463 is replaced by aspartic acid, an amino acid with highly similar properties. This alteration has been reported in the homozygous state in multiple individuals with congenital muscular dystrophy, including hypotonia, motor delay, and elevated CK (MacLeod H et al. Neuromuscul. Disord., 2007 Apr;17:285-9; Navarro-Cobos MJ et al. Neuropediatrics, 2017 12;48:442-450; Lee AJ et al. Neurol Genet, 2019 Apr;5:e315). In addition, this variant has been reported in trans with a second FKRP alteration (Navarro-Cobos MJ et al. Neuropediatrics, 2017 12;48:442-450; Lee AJ et al. Neurol Genet, 2019 Apr;5:e315). It has been suggested that this might be a founder allele in individuals with Latino ancestry (Navarro-Cobos MJ et al. Neuropediatrics, 2017 12;48:442-450). Muscle biopsy from individuals homozygous for this alteration showed myopathic changes including variation in myofiber size, fatty replacement and endomysial fibrosis, absent alpha-dystroglycan staining, reduction in beta-dystroglycan as well as alpha-, beta-, and gamma-sarcoglycan staining, and mild focal reduction of dystrophin and merosin staining (MacLeod H et al. Neuromuscul. Disord., 2007 Apr;17:285-9). This amino acid position is highly conserved in available vertebrate species. In addition, the in silico prediction for this alteration is inconclusive. Based on the supporting evidence, this alteration is interpreted as a disease-causing mutation.
