GeneDx RCV000181897 SCV000234200 uncertain significance not provided 2015-10-22 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Ser937Asn (AGC>AAC): c.2810 G>A in exon 12 of the KCNH2 gene (NM_000238.2)The S937N mutation in the KCNH2 gene has been reported previously in one patient with LQTS and was absent from >2600 reference alleles (Kapplinger JD et al., 2009). Similarly, the S937N mutation was not observed in approximately 5,600 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Other missense mutations affecting neighboring residues (G925R, R948S, R948C, R948H) have also been reported in association with LQTS, further supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Although S937N is a conservative replacement of a neutral, polar residue (Ser) with another (Asn), it occurs in a region of the protein conserved in mammalian evolution.In summary, S937N in the KCNH2 gene is interpreted as a disease-causing mutation. The variant is found in LQT panel(s).
Invitae RCV000631729 SCV000752817 uncertain significance Long QT syndrome 2017-11-19 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces serine with asparagine at codon 937 of the KCNH2 protein (p.Ser937Asn). The serine residue is moderately conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between serine and asparagine. The frequency data for this variant in the population databases is considered unreliable, as metrics indicate poor data quality at this position in the ExAC database. This variant has been reported in individuals refered for long QT testing (PMID: 19716085, 23631430).   ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 67440). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function do not agree on the potential impact of this missense change (SIFT: "Tolerated"; PolyPhen-2: "Possibly Damaging"; Align-GVGD: "Class C0"). In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
