The G218V variant in the DSG2 gene has not been reported as a disease-causing mutation or as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. Although G218V results in a conservative amino acid substitution of one non-polar residue for another, the G218 residue is conserved across species. In silico analysis predicts G218V is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Mutations in nearby residues (P205L, E230G) have been reported in association with ARVC, further supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Furthermore, the G218V variant was not observed in approximately 6,000 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Mutations in nearby residues (P205L, E230G) have been reported in association with ARVC, further supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether this variant is a pathogenic mutation or a rare benign variant. The variant is found in ARVC panel(s).
