Color RCV000774431 SCV000908133 uncertain significance Cardiomyopathy 2018-10-31 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant of Uncertain Significance due to insufficient evidence: This missense variant is located in the extracellular linker region of the TMEM43 protein. Computational prediction tools and conservation analyses suggest that this variant may not impact the protein function. Computational splicing tools suggest that this variant may not impact RNA splicing. To our knowledge, functional assays have not been performed for this variant nor has this variant been reported in individuals affected with cardiovascular disorders in the literature. This variant has been identified in 6/276486 chromosomes in the general population by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD). Available evidence is insufficient to determine the pathogenicity of this variant conclusively.
Invitae RCV000811390 SCV000951655 uncertain significance Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, type 5 2018-10-10 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces aspartic acid with glutamic acid at codon 342 of the TMEM43 protein (p.Asp342Glu). The aspartic acid residue is moderately conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between aspartic acid and glutamic acid. This variant is present in population databases (rs376514478, ExAC 0.003%). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with TMEM43-related disease. 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 and their clinical significance is uncertain. In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
