The PKD1 p.Glu4131del variant was identified in the literature in 1 of 440 proband chromosomes (freq. 0.002) in a study determining the genotype-phenotype relationship of ADPKD variants; control chromosomes were not tested (Hwang 2016). The same study reported that this variant segregated in 5 or more disease-informative family members (positive and affected, or negative, unaffected, and over 40 years of age). The variant was also identified in ClinVar (our laboratory was the only submitter) and ADPKD Mutation Database (classified as likely pathogenic). The variant was not identified in dbSNP, LOVD 3.0, PKD1-LOVD, the Exome Aggregation Consortium (August 8th 2016) or the Genome Aggregation Database (Feb 27, 2017). This variant is an in-frame deletion resulting in the removal of a Glutamic acid (Glu) residue at codon 4131; the impact of this alteration on PKD1 protein function is not known. The variant occurs outside of the splicing consensus sequence and 3 of 4 in silico or computational prediction software programs (SpliceSiteFinder, MaxEntScan, NNSPLICE, GeneSplicer) predict a greater than 10% difference in splicing; this is not very predictive of pathogenicity. In summary, based on the above information, the clinical significance of this variant cannot be determined with certainty at this time, although we would lean towards a more pathogenic role for this variant. This variant is classified as likely pathogenic.
