GeneDx RCV000181753 SCV000234056 likely pathogenic not provided 2014-02-04 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Leu127Phe (CTC>TTC): c.379 C>T in exon 3 of the KCNH2 (HERG) gene (NM_000238.2). The L127F variant in the KCNH2 gene has not been reported as a disease-causing mutation or as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. The L127F variant is a conservative amino acid substitution as these residues share similar properties, and are least likely to impact secondary structure. However, the L127 is conserved across species. In silico analysis predicts L127F is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Mutations in nearby residues (M124R, M124T, F125C, F129I, E130K) have been reported in association with LQTS, further supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Furthermore, the L127F 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. In summary, while L127F is a good candidate for a disease-causing mutation, with the clinical and molecular information available at this time we cannot unequivocally determine the clinical significance of this variant. The variant is found in LQT panel(s).
