The F321I variant of uncertain significance in the DSG2 gene has previously been reported in one individual meeting diagnostic criteria for ARVC, however, family history and segregation data was not provided (Xu et al., 2010). This variant is not observed at a significant frequency in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016; 1000 Genomes Consortium et al., 2015; Exome Variant Server). This substitution occurs at a position that is conserved across species, and in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. However, to our knowledge no studies have been performed to determine the functional effect of the F321I variant. Furthermore, the F321I variant is a conservative amino acid substitution, which is not likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues share similar properties.
