This sequence change replaces glycine with aspartic acid at codon 594 of the KCNH2 protein (p.Gly594Asp). The glycine residue is moderately conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between glycine and aspartic acid. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has been observed in several individuals clinical features of long QT syndrome (LQTS) (PMID: 22949429, 17905336, 19716085, 23098067, 23158531). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 67271). This variant has been reported to affect KCNH2 protein function (PMID: 25417810). In summary, the currently available evidence indicates that the variant is pathogenic, but additional data are needed to prove that conclusively. Therefore, this variant has been classified as Likely Pathogenic.
