The arginine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between arginine and tryptophan. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has been observed in several individuals affected with familial partial lipodystrophy and was observed to segregate with disease in a family (PMID: 19622949, 25885670). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 14489). This variant has been reported to affect LMNA protein function (PMID: 19220582). This variant disrupts the p.Arg482 amino acid residue in LMNA. Other variant(s) that disrupt this residue (p.Arg482Gln) have been determined to be pathogenic (PMID: 10587585, 10999791, 19418082, 19859838, 20130076, 20625965, 26662654). This suggests that this residue is clinically significant, and that variants that disrupt this residue are likely to be disease-causing. For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.

This variant has also been reported in ClinVar as pathogenic (Variation ID: 14489). In vitro functional studies provide some evidence that the p.Arg482Trp variant may slightly impact protein function (PMID: 25524705). However, these types of assays may not accurately represent biological function. Computational prediction tools and conservation analyses suggest that this variant may impact the protein, though this information is not predictive enough to determine pathogenicity. One additional likely pathogenic and one pathogenic variant, resulting in a different amino acid change at the same position, p.Arg482Leu and p.Arg482Gln, have been reported in association with disease in the literature and ClinVar, supporting that a change at this position may not be tolerated (PMID: 10655060, 14597414, 19201734, 23313286, 10587585, 20130076, 28492532 /Variation ID: 14490 and 14486). In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for familial partial lipodystrophy in an autosomal dominant manner based on cosegregation with disease in multiple affected families and the prevalence of this variant in many affected individuals. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PP1_strong, PS4_moderate, PM5, PM2, PP3, PS3_supporting (Richards 2015).
