This sequence change replaces arginine with glycine at codon 2659 of the BRCA2 protein (p.Arg2659Gly). The arginine residue is highly conserved and there is a moderate physicochemical difference between arginine and glycine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has been reported in individuals with breast and/or ovarian cancer in the literature (PMID: 21120943, 27553368, 29335924, 30254663). This variant is also known as c.8204G>A in the literature. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 38130). Experimental studies have shown that this change results in partial aberrant splicing and production of low amounts of an alternate transcript lacking exon 17 in addition to wild-type transcript (PMID: 22505045, 12624152, 28339459). In vitro functional analysis showed this change results in impaired homologous repair activity compared to wild-type BRCA2 protein (PMID: 15695382, 23108138, 29884841). 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.
