Reported in association with DCM, including an African American female with infantile-onset DCM who harbored additional disease-related variants (Pugh et al., 2014; Walsh et al., 2017; Mazzarotto et al., 2020); In silico analysis supports that this missense variant does not alter protein structure/function; Reported in ClinVar (ClinVar Variant ID# 44323; Landrum et al., 2016); This variant is associated with the following publications: (PMID: 31983221, 27532257, 24503780)

p.Asn182Ser (c.545A>G) in the DSG2 gene (NM_01943.3) We have seen this in one African-American adult with mild dilated cardiomyopathy and a family history suspicious for familial dilated cardiomyopathy. Given the frequency in the general population, the weak case data, the lack of conservation, and the poor match with the family’s phenotype, we consider this a variant of uncertain significance, probably benign. The variant has been seen in at least 1 unrelated case of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) (not including this patient's family). Pugh et al (2014) identified the variant in a female infant with a clinical diagnosis of DCM who was of “Black or African American” ethnicity. Variants in several other genes (TTN, DSP, MYH6, MYL3) were also identified in this patient. No family history or segregation data is available. Per the lab report: “The asparagine residue is moderately conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between asparagine and serine. Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function (SIFT, PolyPhen-2, Align-GVGD) all suggest that this variant is likely to be tolerated, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies. In addition, the serine amino acid residue is found in multiple mammalian species, suggesting that this missense changes does not adversely affect protein function.” The variant was seen in 6 of ~60,000 individuals listed in the Exome Aggregation Consortium dataset (http://exac.broadinstitute.org/), which currently includes variant calls on ~64,000 individuals of European, African, Latino and Asian descent (as of 3/10/16). The variant is seen in 5 out of 9798 (AF=0.0005103) African alleles and 1 out of 8612 (AF=0.0001161) East Asian alleles. No other variant at the same codon is listed in this database.
