The D837G pathogenic variant in the KCNH2 gene has been reported previously in association with LQTS, and this variant was absent from 1,488 control alleles (Khositseth et al., 2004; Tester et al., 2005; Partemi et al., 2014). In addition, the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project reports D837G was not observed in approximately 6,500 samples from individuals of European and African American backgrounds, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. The D837G variant is a non-conservative amino acid substitution, which is likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in polarity, charge, size and/or other properties. This substitution also occurs at a position that is conserved across species and islocated in the cyclic-nucleotide-binding homology domain (CNBHD). Moreover, functional studies have shown that variants in the CNBHD can cause incorrect folding that can lead to protein instability and ultimately deficient protein trafficking (Li et al., 2016; Anderson et al., 2014). Furthermore, pathogenic missense variants at the same residue (D837N, D837Y), as well as variants in nearby residues (R835W, R835Q, V841L, P846S, P846T) have been reported in association with LQTS (Stenson et al., 2014), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. In summary, D837G in the KCNH2 gene is interpreted as a pathogenic variant.
