This variant is denoted BRCA1 c.5154G>T at the cDNA level, p.Trp1718Cys (W1718C) at the protein level, and results in the change of a Tryptophan to a Cysteine (TGG>TGT). Using alternate nomenclature, this variant would be defined as/ has been previously published as BRCA1 5273G>T. This variant has been observed in individuals with triple negative breast cancer and familial breast/ovarian cancer, and was reported to segregate with disease in a breast cancer kindred (Blay 2013, Eccles 2015, Couch 2015). Functional assays have found this variant to impact transcriptional activation and lead to protein destabilization (Williams 2003, Mirkovic 2004, Lee 2010). Additionally, this variant demonstrated cisplatin sensitivity and lack of growth rescue similar to pathogenic variants in mouse embryonic stem cells (Bouwman 2013).BRCA1 Trp1718Cys was not observed in approximately 6,500 individuals of European and African American ancestry in the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project, suggesting it is not a common benign variant in these populations. Since Tryptophan and Cysteine differ in polarity, charge, size or other properties, this is considered a non-conservative amino acid substitution. BRCA1 Trp1718Cys occurs at a position that is conserved in mammals and is located in the first BRCT domain and a region known to interact with multiple other proteins (UniProt, Paul 2014). In silico analyses predict that this variant is probably damaging to protein structure and function. Based on the currently available evidence, we consider BRCA1 Trp1718Cys to be a likely pathogenic variant.
