A variant of uncertain significance has been identified in the POLG gene. The L392V missense change was previously identified in cis with another POLG variant in an individual with Parkinson disease and in several unaffected control individuals (Luoma et al., 2007). L392V was subsequently reported on the same allele (in cis) with an in-frame duplication (c.3240_3242dupCCG reported as p.R1081dup) in an individual with Alpers disease who had another POLG pathogenic variant on the other allele (Cardenas et al., 2010). L392V has also been identified in multiple individuals with clinical features of a POLG disorder who did not have a second identifiable pathogenic variant, suggesting it may be a benign variant (Wong et al., 2008; Tang et al., 2011). The L392V variant is observed in 48/6576 (0.7%) alleles from individuals of Finnish background, including a homozygous individual, in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016; 1000 Genomes Consortium et al., 2015; Exome Variant Server). This variant is a conservative amino acid substitution, which is not likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues share similar properties. However, this substitution alters a position that is highly conserved across species, and in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether this variant is a pathogenic variant or a rare benign variant.
