GeneDx RCV000181760 SCV000234063 uncertain significance not provided 2013-11-05 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Ala172Val (GCG>GTG): c.515 C>T in exon 4 of the KCNH2 gene (NM_000238.2). The Ala172Val variant in the KCNH2 gene has not been reported as a disease-causing mutation or as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. Ala172Val results in a conservative amino acid substitution of one non-polar amino acid for another at a position that is conserved across species. In silico analysis was inconsistent with regard to the effect this variant may have on protein function. A mutation in a nearby residue (Arg164His) has been reported in association with LQTS, supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. The Ala172Val variant was not observed in approximately 4,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations.With the clinical and molecular information available at this time, we cannot definitively determine if Ala172Val is a disease-causing mutation or a rare benign variant. The variant is found in LQT panel(s).
