Invitae RCV000666433 SCV001398403 likely pathogenic Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease 2019-10-31 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change affects an acceptor splice site in intron 2 of the PKHD1 gene. It is expected to disrupt RNA splicing and likely results in an absent or disrupted protein product. This variant is present in population databases (rs775511838, ExAC 0.02%). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with PKHD1-related conditions. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 551384). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of sequence changes on RNA splicing suggest that this variant may disrupt the consensus splice site, but this prediction has not been confirmed by published transcriptional studies. Donor and acceptor splice site variants typically lead to a loss of protein function (PMID: 16199547), and loss-of-function variants in PKHD1 are known to be pathogenic (PMID: 19940839). 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.
Integrated Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America RCV000666433 SCV001432059 likely pathogenic Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease 2020-08-28 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant summary: PKHD1 c.53-1G>A is located in a canonical splice-site and is predicted to affect mRNA splicing resulting in a significantly altered protein due to either exon skipping, shortening, or inclusion of intronic material. Several computational tools predict a significant impact on normal splicing: Two predict the variant abolishes a 5 splicing donor site. Four predict the variant abolishes a 3 acceptor site. However, these predictions have yet to be confirmed by functional studies. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 8e-06 in 251300 control chromosomes (gnomAD). To our knowledge, no occurrence of c.53-1G>A in individuals affected with Polycystic Kidney and Hepatic Disease and no experimental evidence demonstrating its impact on protein function have been reported. Two ClinVar submitters (evaluation after 2014) cite the variant as likely pathogenic. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as likely pathogenic.
