This sequence change replaces arginine with glutamine at codon 94 of the SCN2B protein (p.Arg94Gln). The arginine residue is highly conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between arginine and glutamine. This variant is present in population databases (rs774866184, ExAC 0.01%). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with SCN2B-related conditions. Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function output the following: SIFT: Tolerated; PolyPhen-2: Benign; Align-GVGD: Class C0. The glutamine amino acid residue is found in multiple mammalian species, suggesting that this missense change does not adversely affect protein function. These predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies and their clinical significance is uncertain. In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance.
