GeneDx RCV000236498 SCV000292951 likely pathogenic not provided 2018-02-23 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R658C missense variant in the SH3TC2 gene has been reported previously in multiple families with CMT, at least two of whom who were also heterozygous for the R954X pathogenic variant (Senderek et al.,2003; Azzedine et al., 2006; Lassuthova et al., 2011). Functional studies show that R658C alters protein localization (Lupo et al., 2009; Roberts et al., 2010). This variant is not observed at a significant frequency in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016; 1000 Genomes Consortium et al., 2015; Exome Variant Server). The R658C variant is a non-conservative amino acid substitution, which is likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in polarity, charge, size and/or other properties. This substitution occurs at a position where amino acids with similar properties to Arginine are tolerated across species. Based on currently available evidence, R658C is a strong candidate for a pathogenic variant. However, the possibility it may be a rare benign variant cannot be excluded.

Invitae RCV000654080 SCV000775970 likely pathogenic Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4 2017-12-12 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces arginine with cysteine at codon 658 of the SH3TC2 protein (p.Arg658Cys). The arginine residue is highly conserved and there is a large physicochemical difference between arginine and cysteine. This variant is present in population databases (rs80338926, ExAC 0.01%). This variant has been found to segregate with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4C in affected families (PMID: 14574644, 21291453). It has also been reported in the homozygous state in an affected individual (PMID: 16924012). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 21690). Experimental studies have shown that this missense change impacts SH3TC2 cellular localization in vitro (PMID: 19744956). In summary, the currently available evidence indicates that the variant is pathogenic, but additional data are needed to prove that conclusively. Therefore, this variant has been classified as Likely Pathogenic.
