COL5A2 P460S - GET-Evidence


COL5A2 P460S

(COL5A2 Pro460Ser)

Short summary

Tentatively benign. Although predicted to be damaging by Polyphen 2, this variant is seen in 2 out of 62 PGP & public genomes. OMIM lists other more disruptive variants (frameshift & nonsense) as reported to cause Ehlers-Danlos syndrome when homozygous.

Variant evidence

Polyphen 2 predicts damaging effect, but variants listed by OMIM for Ehlers-Danlos are more severe (frameshift/nonsense)

Functional -
Case/Control 1

Estimated homozygous rate of 1 in 4,000 is inconsistent with reported incidence of Ehlers-Danlos (1 in 20,000 to 50,000), although more observations are needed to establish a stastically significant difference.

Inheritance pattern


Summary of published research, and additional commentary

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome has a prevalence of 1 in 20,000 to 1 in 50,000. Using this, we can estimate the maximum allele frequency of some unknown pathogenic variant causing this disease to be around (1/50,000)^0.5 = 0.0045. The chances of seeing a variant with 0.45% allele frequency twice in 128 randomly chosen variants is p = 0.0205.

Note, however, that we are evaluating this variant because it is present in one of the genomes — a less biased estimator would exclude that genome, leaving us with 1 in 127 random observations, this has much lower statistical significance for differing from the frequency=0.45% hypothesis (p = 0.112).
