GeneDx RCV000493705 SCV000582868 likely pathogenic not provided 2015-12-03 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The E283K 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 that is conserved across species. In silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Missense variants in nearby residues (R279Q, G280R, T284I) have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with citrullinemia (Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Therefore, this variant is likely pathogenic; however, the possibility that it is benign cannot be excluded.

Invitae RCV001290024 SCV001400981 pathogenic Citrullinemia 2023-11-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces glutamic acid, which is acidic and polar, with lysine, which is basic and polar, at codon 283 of the ASS1 protein (p.Glu283Lys). This variant is present in population databases (rs765338121, gnomAD 0.004%). This missense change has been observed in individual(s) with citrullinemia type (PMID: 12815590, 16475226, 23611581, 28111830; Invitae). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 430139). 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 ASS1 protein function with a positive predictive value of 80%. For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
ARUP Laboratories, Molecular Genetics and Genomics, ARUP Laboratories RCV000672066 SCV001471500 likely pathogenic Citrullinemia type I 2020-01-02 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The ASS1 c.847G>A; p.Glu283Lys variant (rs765338121) is reported in the literature in the homozygous or compound heterozygous state in several individuals affected with citrullinemia (Diez-Fernandez 2017, Gao 2003, Kleijer 2006). This variant is reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 430139), and is only observed on six alleles in the Genome Aggregation Database, indicating it is not a common polymorphism. The glutamic acid at codon 283 is highly conserved, and computational analyses (SIFT, PolyPhen-2) predict that this variant is deleterious. Based on available information, this variant is considered to be likely pathogenic. References: Diez-Fernandez C et al.
