Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000041176 SCV000064867 uncertain significance not specified 2014-07-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant classified as Uncertain Significance - Favor Pathogenic. The Gln114fs va riant in NEXN has been identified by our laboratory in one Caucasian adult with HCM. Data from large population studies is insufficient to assess the frequency of this variant. This variant is predicted to cause a frameshift, which alters t he protein?s amino acid sequence beginning at position 114 and lead to a prematu re termination codon 16 amino acids downstream. This alteration is then predicte d to lead to a truncated or absent protein. Although the severe nature of this c hange increases the likelihood that the variant is pathogenic, the NEXN gene has not been widely studied and the spectrum of variants leading to disease is not well-defined. Loss of NEXN function has been shown to cause DCM in zebrafish; ho wever, it remains unclear if one or both copies of the gene need to be affected to cause disease (Hassel 2009, Wang 2010). In summary, while there is some suspi cion for a pathogenic role, the clinical significance of the Gln114fs variant is uncertain.
