DMD R2155W - GET-Evidence


DMD R2155W

(DMD Arg2155Trp)

Short summary

Probably benign.

Variant evidence
Computational -1

Polyphen 2 predicts damaging effect.

Functional -
Case/Control 5

Very strong contradiction of severe pathogenic hypothesis. Seen in 2 out of 92 PGP and public control genomes, and seen in a healthy male PGP participant.

Familial 2

Sitnik et al. conclude familial segregation indicates the variant is a polymorphism.

See Sitnik R et al. 1997 (9298822).

Low clinical importance, Likely benign

(The "low clinical importance, likely" qualifier is assigned automatically based on the above evidence and importance scores.)

Inheritance pattern


Summary of published research, and additional commentary

Frequency in controls is 2/92, extremely inconsistent with a disease causing hypothesis. The variant is also seen in another unaffected male PGP genome (not in the frequency calculation).

Allele frequency

  • A @ chrX:31986607: 2.7% (236/8756) in EVS
  • A @ chrX:31896527: 2.2% (2/92) in GET-Evidence
  • Frequency shown in summary reports: 2.7% (236/8756)

In this study of variants causing Duchenne muscular dystrophy, this variant, along with Arg528Asp, is listed as a polymorphism as it did not segregate with disease in the families studied.
