This sequence change replaces aspartic acid with glycine at codon 837 of the KCNH2 protein (p.Asp837Gly). The aspartic acid residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between aspartic acid and glycine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has been observed in individuals affected with long QT syndrome (PMID: 25119684, 21440677). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 67407). This variant has been reported to affect KCNH2 protein function (PMID: 25417810). In summary, the currently available evidence indicates that the variant is pathogenic, but additional data are needed to prove that conclusively. Therefore, this variant has been classified as Likely Pathogenic.
