TXNDC3 I338T - GET-Evidence



(TXNDC3 Ile338Thr)

Short summary

Tentatively classified as benign, but predicted to be damaging and other variants in this gene are implicated in causing primary ciliary dyskinesia (situs inversus, chronic sinusitis, and bronchiectasis).

Variant evidence

Polyphen 2 predicts damaging effect

Functional -
Case/Control 1

Allele frequency implies the variant is not severely pathogenic, but more observations would help establish this as significant.

Summary of published research, and additional commentary

No known publications, found heterozygously in 4 out of 64 PGP + public genomes (allele frequency of 3.1%). This variant is predicted to be damaging by Polyphen 2 and other variants in this gene are associated with causing primary ciliary dyskinesia, presumably in a recessive manner. OMIM only reports a single case with mutations in this gene (compound heterozygous for L426X and an intronic/splicing mutation). This GeneReviews article gives an incidence of 1 in 16,000: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1122/

To test whether our observations of this variant in random controls significantly contradicts a pathogenic hypothesis, we test this variant against a hypothetical pathogenic variant responsible for 10% of PCD cases with moderate (5%) penetrance (1 in 8,000 homozygous, 1 in 160,000 affected) — this hypothetical variant would have an allele frequency of 1.1%. The chances of seeing this variant in 4 out of 128 random alleles is p=0.056.
