The G759R variant of uncertain significance in the DSG2 gene has not been published as pathogenic or been reported as benign to our knowledge. This variant is observed in 0.002%-0.008% alleles across ethnic groups in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016). The G759R variant is a non-conservative amino acid substitution, which is likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in polarity, charge, size and/or other properties. Nevertheless, in-silico analyses, including protein predictors and evolutionary conservation, support that this variant does not alter protein structure/function. Therefore, based on the currently available information, it is unclear whether this variant is pathogenic or rare benign.
