This sequence change replaces aspartic acid with asparagine at codon 297 of the DSG2 protein (p.Asp297Asn). The aspartic acid residue is highly conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between aspartic acid and asparagine. This variant is present in population databases (rs751012696, ExAC 0.009%). This variant has been reported in two individuals affected with arrhythmogenic right ventriculardysplasia (ARVD) (PMID: 20031616, 20857253). However, in one of these cases it was found in homozygosis and in the other one co-occurring with a pathogenic variant in the PKP2 gene. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 199804). Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function do not agree on the potential impact of this missense change (SIFT: "Tolerated"; PolyPhen-2: "Probably Damaging"; Align-GVGD: "Class C0"). In summary, this is a rare missense change that has been found in two ARVD patients.  In the absence of confirmed segregation or functional studies, at this time this change has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
