GeneDx RCV000181808 SCV000234111 likely pathogenic not provided 2018-07-31 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The W563C likely pathogenic variant in the KCNH2 gene has been previously reported in association with LQTS; however, no specific clinical or familial segregation information was provided in either study (Nagaoka et al., 2008; Goldenberg et al., 2011). Subsequently, Miyazaki et al. (2016) identified W563C in a male and female sibling pair each diagnosed with LQTS in infancy. W563C has been identified independently in an unrelated individual with LQTS referred for genetic testing at GeneDx. The W563C variant is not observed in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016). W563C is a non-conservative amino acid substitution, which is likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in polarity, charge, size and/or other properties. Moreover, in silico analysis, which includes protein predictors and evolutionary conservation, supports a deleterious effect. A missense variant in the same residue (W563D) and multiple missense variants in nearby residues (A558P, A558E, L559F, L559H, A561P, A561T, A561V, H562P, H562R, L564P, A565T, C566F, C566S, I567T, W568R, W568C) have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with LQTS (Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this residue and region of the protein.In summary, W563C in the KCNH2 gene is interpreted as a likely pathogenic variant.
