The V985I variant of uncertain significance in the DSG2 gene has not been published as pathogenic or benign to our knowledge. 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). Nevertheless, V985I is a conservative amino acid substitution, which is not likely to impact secondary protein structure as these residues share similar properties. This substitution also occurs at a position where amino acids with similar properties to valine are tolerated across species, and isoleucine is the wild type in at least two species. In silico analysis predicts this variant likely does not alter the protein structure/function. Moreover, no missense variants in nearby residues have been reported in the Human Gene Mutation Database in association with cardiomyopathy (Stenson et al., 2014).
