Laboratory for Molecular Medicine,Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000825951 SCV000967436 uncertain significance not specified 2018-03-21 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Variant classified as Uncertain Significance - Favor Benign. The p.Lys2129Arg va riant in LOXHD1 has not been previously reported in individuals with hearing los s, but has been identified in 1/23956 of Latino chromosomes by the Genome Aggreg ation Database (gnomAD, http://gnomad.broadinstitute.org). Although this variant has been seen in the general population, its frequency is not high enough to ru le out a pathogenic role. The Lysine (Lys) at position 2129 is not conserved in mammals or evolutionary distant species, with 1 mammal and >10 other species hav ing an arginine (Arg) at this position, raising the possibility that a change at this position may be tolerated. Additional computational prediction tools sugge st that the p.Lys2129Arg variant may not impact the protein, though this informa tion is not predictive enough to rule out pathogenicity. In summary, while the c linical significance of the p.Lys2129Arg variant is uncertain, the conservation and computational data suggest that it is more likely to be benign.
