GeneDx RCV000444524 SCV000535999 likely pathogenic not provided 2017-03-30 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Although the F617L variant caused by the nucleotide substitution c.1851 C>A has not been published previously, F617L caused by the nucleotide substitution c.1849 T>C has been reported in an asymptomatic individual with a prolonged QT interval (Shigemizou et al., 2015). However, detailed clinical information and segregation data were not provided, and the pathogenicity of the c.1849 T>C variant has not been definitely determined. The F617L variant was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Although the F617L variant is a conservative amino acid substitution, which is not likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues share similar properties, it occurs at a position that is conserved across species. Furthermore, in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. A missense variant in the same residue (F617V) and missense variants in nearby residues (A614V, L615F, Y616C, L622F) have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with LQTS ( Biernacka et al., 2015; Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Based on currently available evidence, F617L is a strong candidate for a pathogenic variant. However, the possibility it is a rare benign variant cannot be excluded.
