Variant summary: The BRCA2 c.2849T>A (p.Val950Asp) variant causes a missense change involving a non-conserved nucleotide with 3/5 in silico tools predicting a "benign" outcome, although these predictions have yet to be functionally assessed. The variant of interest was observed in the large, broad control population, ExAC, with an allele frequency of 2/120650 (1/60325), predominantly in the South Asian cohort, 2/16494 (1/8247), which does not exceed the estimated maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic BRCA2 variant of 1/1333. The variant of interest has not been reported in affected individuals via publications. Multiple clinical diagnostic laboratories cite the variant as "uncertain significance." Therefore, due to the limited available information (ie, lack of clinical and functional studies), the variant of interest has been classified as a "Variant of Uncertain Significance (VUS)," until additional information becomes available.
