PCCA I475V - GET-Evidence



(PCCA Ile475Val)

Short summary

Reported as a polymorphism, tentatively presumed benign.

Variant evidence
Computational 1

BLOSUM100 indicates Ile to Val is not disruptive

Functional -
Case/Control 2

If Richard et al.‘s allele frequency data is correct, this would contradict a pathogenic effect. However, it deviates significantly from observations in GET-Evidence data.

Richard E, Desviat LR, Pérez B, Pérez-Cerdá C, Ugarte M. Genetic heterogeneity in propionic acidemia patients with alpha-subunit defects. Identification of five novel mutations, one of them causing instability of the protein. Biochim Biophys Acta. 1999 Mar 30;1453(3):351-8. PubMed PMID: 10101253.

The authors report this variant and seem to imply it’s a polymorphism. It’s seen homozygously in two out of 24 patients with propionic acidemia, but also seen in seven random chromosomes in a screen of 39 control individuals. Of the patients, one had another potential explanatory homozygous variant, the other no other was found by their sequencing. An allele frequency of 9% in controls is highly contradicting the rarity of this genetic disease.

Counting alleles, case+: 2, case-: 22, control+: 7, control-: 71 — no statistically significant difference.

The allele frequency reported in their controls differs significantly from that in GET-Evidence data (1 / 128), potentially reflecting a higher concentration of the variant in the ethnic background in their study, although the authors do not mention the ethnicity/origin of their controls.
