Invitae RCV001040831 SCV001204421 likely pathogenic not provided 2020-09-28 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces cysteine with arginine at codon 766 of the USH2A protein (p.Cys766Arg). The cysteine residue is highly conserved and there is a large physicochemical difference between cysteine and arginine. This variant is present in population databases (rs368687374, ExAC 0.01%). This variant has been observed in individual(s) with retinitis pigmentosa (PMID: 23591405, 25404053, 30924848, Invitae). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 812458). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function (SIFT, PolyPhen-2, Align-GVGD) all suggest that this variant is likely to be disruptive, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies and their clinical significance is uncertain. In summary, the currently available evidence indicates that the variant is pathogenic, but additional data are needed to prove that conclusively. Therefore, this variant has been classified as Likely Pathogenic.

Based on this evidence we have classified this variant as Likely Pathogenic. If you have any questions about the classification please reach out to the Pierce Lab.
