GeneDx RCV000181795 SCV000234098 pathogenic not provided 2012-08-24 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Asp501Gly (GAC>GGC):c.1502 A>G in exon 6 of the KCNH2 gene (NM_000238.2)The Asp501Gly mutation in the KCNH2 gene has been reported previously in association with LQTS (Goldenberg I et al., 2011). In addition, the NHLBI ESP Exome Variant Server reports Asp501Gly was not observed in approximately 6,000 samples from individuals of European and African American backgrounds, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Asp501Gly results in a non-conservative amino acid substitution of a negatively charged Aspartic acid with a non-polar Glycine at a residue that is conserved across species. Different mutations at the same codon (Asp501His, Asp501Asn) as well as mutations in a nearby codon (Tyr493Cys, Tyr493Phe, Tyr493Ser) have also been reported in association with LQTS, further supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein.In summary, Asp501Gly in the KCNH2 gene is interpreted as a disease-causing mutation. The variant is found in LQT panel(s).
