p.Met653Ile (ATG>ATA): c.1959 G>A in exon 13 of the DSG2 gene (NM_001943.3). The M653I variant has not been published as a mutation, nor has it been reported as a benign polymorphism to our knowledge. The M653I 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. The M653I variant is a conservative amino acid substitution, which is not likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues share similar properties. This substitution occurs at a position that is conserved in mammals. In silico analysis is inconsistent in its predictions as to whether or not the variant is damaging to the protein structure/function, but at least two algorithms concur that this variant is possibly benign. Furthermore, no missense mutations in nearby residues have been reported in association with familial arrhythmia, indicating that this region of the protein may be tolerant of change. 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 ARRHYTHMIA panel(s).
