GeneDx RCV000187922 SCV000241524 likely pathogenic not provided 2012-08-08 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing p.Arg581Leu (CGA>CTA):c.1742 G>T in exon 15 of the KCNQ2 gene (NM_172107.2) The Arg581Leu missense change has not been published as a mutation, nor has it been reported as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. The NHLBI ESP Exome Variant Project has not identified Arg581Leu in approximately 6,500 individuals of European or African American ethnicity, indicating that it is not a common benign variant in these populations. The amino acid substitution is non-conservative, as a positively charged Arginine residue is replaced by an uncharged, non-polar Leucine residue. Arg581Leu alters a position in the subunit interaction domain that is highly conserved across species and in related proteins. Additionally, multiple in silico algorithms predict that Arg581Leu may be damaging to protein structure/function. Therefore, based on the currently available information, Arg581Leu is a strong candidate for a disease-causing mutation, although the possibility that it is a benign variant cannot be excluded. The variant is found in INFANT-EPI panel(s).
