This sequence change replaces aspartic acid with tyrosine at codon 943 of the MSH6 protein (p.Asp943Tyr). The aspartic acid residue is highly conserved and there is a large physicochemical difference between aspartic acid and tyrosine. This variant is present in population databases (rs143520357, ExAC 0.006%). This variant has been reported in individuals affected with breast cancer (PMID: 25186627) and pancreatic cancer (PMID: 25479140). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 142495). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function do not agree on the potential impact of this missense change (SIFT: Deleterious; PolyPhen-2: Probably Damaging; Align-GVGD: Class C1). However, an algorithm developed specifically for the MSH6 protein suggests that this missense change is likely to be deleterious (PMID: 23621914). None of these predictions have been confirmed by published functional studies. In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance. 5
