Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000826153 SCV000967688 pathogenic Usher syndrome; Rare genetic deafness 2018-07-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Cys870X variant in USH2A has been previously reported in >10 probands with Usher syndrome, who were either homozygous or compound heterozygous for another USH2A variant (Baux 2017, Bonnet 2016, Comander 2017, Krawitz 2014, Le Quesne S tabej 2012, Neuhaus 2017, Sodi 2014, Weisschuh 2016). This variant has been iden tified in 0.003% (4/126016) of European chromosomes by the Genome Aggregation Da tabase (gnomAD,; however, its frequency is low enough to be consistent with a recessive carrier frequency. This nonsense varia nt leads to a premature termination codon at position 870, which is predicted to lead to a truncated or absent protein. In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for autosomal recessive Usher syndrome based on t he previously reported probands with Usher syndrome, the predicted impact of the variant, and its low frequency in the general population. ACMG/AMP criteria app lied: PVS1, PM3_VeryStrong, PM2, PP4.

Invitae RCV001384598 SCV001584154 pathogenic not provided 2020-09-20 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change creates a premature translational stop signal (p.Cys870*) in the USH2A gene. It is expected to result in an absent or disrupted protein product. This variant is present in population databases (rs767078782, ExAC 0.003%). This variant has been observed in individual(s) with Usher syndrome (PMID: 22135276, 28559085). In at least one individual the data is consistent with the variant being in trans (on the opposite chromosome) from a pathogenic variant. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 557167). Loss-of-function variants in USH2A are known to be pathogenic (PMID: 10729113, 10909849, 20507924, 25649381). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.
