GeneDx RCV000487077 SCV000573487 pathogenic not provided 2017-03-03 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The F640L pathogenic variant in the KCNH2 gene has previously been reported in association with LQTS (Wilde etal., 1999; VanLangen et al., 2003; Giudicessi et al., 2012); however, the nucleotide change was not specified. Adifferent nucleotide change resulting in the same amino acid substitution (c.1920 C>A) has also been reported inassociation with LQTS (Jongbloed et al., 1999; Kapa et al., 2009; Vyas et al., 2016). In addition, a differentmissense variant affecting the same amino acid residue (F640V) has been reported in association with LQTS (Testeret al., 2005; Kapa et al., 2009; Giudicessi et al., 2012). Although the F640L variant results in a conservative aminoacid substitution, which is not likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues share similar properties,this substitution occurs at a position that is conserved across species, and in silico analysis predicts this variant isprobably damaging to the protein structure/function. Functional studies by Anderson et al. (2014) demonstrate thatF640L (nucleotide change not specified) results in deficient trafficking. Finally, the F640L variant is not observed inlarge population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016; 1000 Genomes Consortium et al., 2015; Exome Variant Server).
