Invitae RCV000794353 SCV000933758 uncertain significance DICER1-related pleuropulmonary blastoma cancer predisposition syndrome 2018-12-04 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change falls in intron 18 of the DICER1 gene. It does not directly change the encoded amino acid sequence of the DICER1 protein, but it affects a nucleotide within the consensus splice site of the intron. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with DICER1-related conditions. Nucleotide substitutions within the consensus splice site are a relatively common cause of aberrant splicing (PMID: 17576681, 9536098). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of sequence changes on RNA splicing suggest that this variant is not likely to affect RNA splicing, but this prediction has not been confirmed by published transcriptional studies. 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.
