It 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. Ile273Asn is a non-conservative change of a non-polar Isoleucine residue to a polar Asparagine residue. It alters a conserved position in the pore loop between the fifth and sixth transmembrane domains of the KCNQ2 protein where many other missense mutation have been reported. Multiple in silico algorithms predict Ile273Asn may be damaging to protein structure/function. Additionally, at the nucleotide level, c.818 T>A alters the second nucleotide of exon 6 and multiple in silico algorithms predict that it weakens or possibly destroys the splice acceptor site leading to abnormal splicing; however, RNA/functional studies have not been performed to determine the actual effect of the c.818 T>A sequence change in vivo. Therefore, currently available information suggests that Ile273Asn 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).
