The VWF c.3922C>T; p.Arg1308Cys variant (rs61749387), also known as R545C, is reported in the literature in multiple individuals affected with von Willebrand disease type 2B (Ahmad 2013, Baronciani 2005, Freitas 2019, Randi 1991, Ranger 2012). This variant is reported in ClinVar (Variation ID: 289), and is absent from general population databases (Exome Variant Server, Genome Aggregation Database), indicating it is not a common polymorphism. The arginine at codon 1308 is moderately conserved, and computational analyses (SIFT, PolyPhen-2) predict that this variant is deleterious. Additionally, other amino acid substitutions at this codon (Leu, Pro, Ser, His) have been reported in individuals with von Willebrand disease type 2B (Baronciani 2005, Hatta 2015, Meyer 1997, Nurden 2006). Based on available information, this variant is considered to be pathogenic. References: Ahmad F et al. Characterisation of mutations and molecular studies of type 2 von Willebrand disease.
