EGL Genetic Diagnostics,Eurofins Clinical Diagnostics RCV000724801 SCV000232838 uncertain significance not provided 2015-05-06 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing
Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000384250 SCV000461133 benign Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy 4, autosomal dominant 2018-01-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed in the ICSL laboratory as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. It had not been previously curated by ICSL or reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD: prior to June 1st, 2018), and was therefore a candidate for classification through an automated scoring system. Utilizing variant allele frequency, disease prevalence and penetrance estimates, and inheritance mode, an automated score was calculated to assess if this variant is too frequent to cause the disease. Based on the score and internal cut-off values, a variant classified as benign is not then subjected to further curation. The score for this variant resulted in a classification of benign for this disease.
Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory,Illumina RCV000287552 SCV000461134 uncertain significance Spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive 8 2018-01-13 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This variant was observed in the ICSL laboratory as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. It had not been previously curated by ICSL or reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD: prior to June 1st, 2018), and was therefore a candidate for classification through an automated scoring system. Utilizing variant allele frequency, disease prevalence and penetrance estimates, and inheritance mode, an automated score was calculated to assess if this variant is too frequent to cause the disease. Based on the score, this variant could not be ruled out of causing disease and therefore its association with disease required further investigation. A literature search was performed for the gene, cDNA change, and amino acid change (if applicable). No publications were found based on this search. This variant was therefore classified as a variant of unknown significance for this disease.

Invitae RCV000689662 SCV000817325 uncertain significance Spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive 8; Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy 4, autosomal dominant 2019-06-28 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces glycine with alanine at codon 5217 of the SYNE1 protein (p.Gly5217Ala). The glycine residue is moderately conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between glycine and alanine. This variant is present in population databases (rs201313856, ExAC 0.03%). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with SYNE1-related disease. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 198947). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function output the following: SIFT: "Tolerated"; PolyPhen-2: "Benign"; Align-GVGD: "Class C0". The alanine amino acid residue is found in multiple mammalian species, suggesting that this missense change does not adversely affect protein function. These predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies and their clinical significance is uncertain. 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.
