Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000150969 SCV000198645 uncertain significance not specified 2015-05-22 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant classified as Uncertain Significance - Favor Benign. The c.4376-6G>A var iant in LOXHD1 has been previously identified by our laboratory in 1 individual with hearing loss who carried a homozygous variant in another gene that was suff icient to explain their disease. It has also been identified in 1/8398 European chromosomes by the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC, http://exac.broadinstitut e.org; dbSNP rs369463541). This variant is located in the 3' splice region. Comp utational tools do not suggest an impact to splicing. In addition, the guanine ( G) nucleotide at position c.4376-6 is not conserved in mammals or evolutionarily distant species and 9 mammals carry an adenine (A), supporting that a change at this position may be tolerated. However, this information is not predictive eno ugh to rule out pathogenicity. In summary, while the clinical significance of th e c.4376-6G>A variant is uncertain, the presence of the variant nucleotide in ot her species and predicted lack of impact on splicing suggest that it is more lik ely to be benign.
