This missense variant replaces aspartic acid with glutamic acid at codon 7 of the TP53 protein. Computational prediction is inconclusive regarding the impact of this variant on protein structure and function (internally defined REVEL score threshold 0.5 < inconclusive < 0.7, PMID: 27666373). Functional studies have shown the mutant protein to be functional in yeast transactivation assay (PMID: 12826609 and IARC database) and to lack a dominant negative effect or loss-of-function phenotype in human cell growth assay (PMID: 30224644). To our knowledge, this variant has not been reported in individuals affected with hereditary cancer in the literature. This variant has not been identified in the general population by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD). The available evidence is insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease conclusively. Therefore, this variant is classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
