GeneDx RCV000182029 SCV000234332 likely pathogenic not provided 2012-02-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Trp585Leu variant in the KCNH2 gene has not been reported previously as a disease-causing mutation or as a benign polymorphism, to our knowledge. Although Trp585Leu results in a conservative amino acid substitution of one non-polar amino acid with another, the substitution occurs at a position that is highly conserved throughout evolution. The NHLBI ESP Exome Variant Server reports that Trp585Leu was not observed in approximately 5,000 samples from individuals of European and African American backgrounds, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. In silico analysis predicts Trp585Leu is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Moreover, mutations in this codon (Trp585Cys) and nearby codons (Gly584Arg, Gly584Cys, Gly584Ser, Gly584Val, Gly590Val) have been reported in association with LQTS, further supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. In summary, although Trp585Leu is a good candidate for a disease-causing mutation, we cannot unequivocally determine the clinical significance of this variant. The variant is found in LQT panel(s).
