Summary of published research, and additional commentary

“Mutation analysis in type 1 von Willebrand disease patients entered in the multicenter MCMDM-1VWD study” (Goodeve et al) http://blackwellpublishing.com/isth2003/abstract.asp?id=7788
This mentions the variant along with other VWF variants found in 95 cases. They don’t mention how many but, given the allele frequency of this variant, it is unsurprising that they report seeing it.

Allele frequency

  • T @ chr12:6061559: 4.6% (495/10758) in EVS
  • T @ chr12:5931819: 3.1% (4/128) in GET-Evidence
  • Frequency shown in summary reports: 4.6% (495/10758)

This variant was seen downstream of a homozygous gene conversion (which caused a nonsense mutation) seen in a case with type 3 von Willebrand disease in a consanguineous family. This implies it is a nonpathogenic polymorphism.
