Although the c.2923delG likely pathogenic variant in the DSG2 gene has not been reported to our knowledge, this variant has been identified in one other unrelated individual referred for ARVC genetic testing at GeneDx. The c.2923delG variant causes a shift in reading frame resulting in a nonsense change at codon 975, denoted p.Val975Stop. This likely pathogenic variant is expected to result in an abnormal, truncated protein product with loss of the last 144 amino acid residues. Multiple other frameshift and nonsense variants in the DSG2 gene have been reported in Human Gene Mutation Database in association with ARVC (Stenson et al., 2014). Furthermore, the c.2923delG variant has not been observed in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016).
