p.Leu187Pro (CTC>CCC): c.560 T>C in exon 3 of the KCNQ1 gene (NM_000218.2). The L187P mutation in the KCNQ1 gene has been reported previously in association with LQTS (Zhang X et al., 2008). The L187P mutation was found to co-segregate with the LQTS phenotype in the 7 generations a large family with LQTS, and this mutation was absent in 200 control individuals (Zhang X et al., 2008). In addition, the L187P mutation was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, indicating it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Located in the linker between the S2 and S3 domains, the L187 residue is not uniformly conserved across species, however variation is limited to similar non-polar amino acids. The L187P mutation results in 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. Furthermore, mutations in nearby codons (G186R, G186S, G189R, G189E) have also been reported in association with LQTS, further supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein. In summary, L187P in the KCNQ1 gene is interpreted as a disease-causing mutation. The variant is found in LQT panel(s).
