This sequence change replaces alanine with aspartic acid at codon 98 of the NF2 protein (p.Ala98Asp). The alanine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between alanine and aspartic acid. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency) and has not been reported in the literature in individuals with a NF2-related disease. Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function (SIFT, PolyPhen-2, Align-GVGD) all suggest that this variant is likely to be disruptive, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies. In summary, this variant is a novel missense change with uncertain impact on protein function. It has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
