p.Glu944Lys (GAG>AAG): c.2830 G>A in exon 18 of the POLG gene (NM_002693.2). The E944K variant in the POLG gene has not been reported previously as a pathogenic variant, nor as a benign variant, to our knowledge. The E944K variant is observed in 39/17,248 (0.226%) alleles from individuals of East Asian background, and in 40/245,960 total alleles, in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016). The E944K 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. In-silico analyses, including protein predictors and evolutionary conservation, support a deleterious effect. We interpret E944K as a variant of uncertain significance. The variant is found in EPILEPSY panel(s).
