Genes affected
BRCA2 (HGNC:1101): (BRCA2 DNA repair associated) Inherited mutations in BRCA1 and this gene, BRCA2, confer increased lifetime risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer. Both BRCA1 and BRCA2 are involved in maintenance of genome stability, specifically the homologous recombination pathway for double-strand DNA repair. The largest exon in both genes is exon 11, which harbors the most important and frequent mutations in breast cancer patients. The BRCA2 gene was found on chromosome 13q12.3 in human. The BRCA2 protein contains several copies of a 70 aa motif called the BRC motif, and these motifs mediate binding to the RAD51 recombinase which functions in DNA repair. BRCA2 is considered a tumor suppressor gene, as tumors with BRCA2 mutations generally exhibit loss of heterozygosity (LOH) of the wild-type allele. [provided by RefSeq, May 2020]

Pathogenic, criteria provided, single submitterclinical testingHuman Genome Sequencing Center Clinical Lab, Baylor College of MedicineMay 24, 2017The c.5946del (p.Ser1982Argfs*22) variant has been detected in a multiple patients with breast and ovarian cancer [reported as c.6174del in PMID 8673091, 23633455, 22006311, 21324516, 22430266]. The variant was also detected in patients with prostate cancer [PMID 19188187, 20736950] and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma [PMID 23658460]. This variant is associated with a cancer risk of 50-43% and 18-20% risk for breast and ovarian cancer respectively by age 70 [PMID 9145676,15994883]. In vitro assays showed that this variant leads to a loss of function of the protein [PMID 15695382]. This variant has been reported in 32 non-Finnish Europeans from the ExAC database (http://exac.broadinstitute.org/variant/13-32914437-GT-G). This c.5946del (p.Ser1982Argfs*22) variant occurs at high frequency in the Ashkenazi Jewish population and is considered a founder mutation in this population. This variant is thus classified as pathogenic.[leduc, 2017-03-07] -
Pathogenic, criteria provided, single submitterclinical testingJohns Hopkins Genomics, Johns Hopkins UniversityMay 03, 2022This variant (rs28897738) has been reported in the literature in association with a variety of BRCA2-related cancer conditions that are inherited in a dominant or recessive manner. It is known as a founder mutation in the Ashkenazi Jewish population and has also been observed in individuals of non-Ashkenazi Jewish descent. It is rare (<0.1%) in a large population dataset (gnomAD: 78/282088 total alleles; 0.0277%; no homozygotes) and has been reported in ClinVar(Variation ID 9325). This frameshift variant results in a premature stop codon in exon 11, likely leading to nonsense-mediated decay and lack of protein production and has supporting functional evidence. We consider this variant to be pathogenic. -

Pathogenic, reviewed by expert panelcurationClinGen ENIGMA BRCA1 and BRCA2 Variant Curation Expert Panel, ClinGenOct 10, 2023The c.5946del variant in BRCA2 is a deletion of a single nucleotide, predicted to encode a frameshift with consequent premature termination of the protein at codon 22 of the frameshift, or amino acid 2003 (p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22). This deletion variant was not observed in gnomAD v2.1 (exomes only, non-cancer subset) or gnomAD v3.1 (non-cancer subset), but PM2_Supporting was not applied since recall is suboptimal for this type of variant (PM2_Supporting not met). Frameshift variant predicted to cause a premature stop codon in biologically-relevant-exon 11 leading to nonsense mediated decay (PVS1 met). The ENIGMA BRCA1/2 VCEP considered multiple lines of functional and clinical evidence to define exon-specific weights for PTC in BRCA2, and results indicate that strong evidence towards pathogenicity may be applied for a PTC variant in BRCA2 exon 11 (PM5_Strong (PTC)). This variant has been detected in 6 individuals with phenotype consistent with BRCA2-Fanconi Anemia (FA). At least two clinical features of FA (physical features, pathology findings and cancer diagnosis <=5yr) and confirmed chromosome breakage, are seen in these individuals. 6 were compound heterozygous for the variant and a pathogenic or likely pathogenic variant, and confirmed to be in trans. Total points equated to 8 (PM3_Strong met; PMIDs: 14559878, 15516848, 16825431, 19530235). In summary, this variant meets the criteria to be classified as a Pathogenic variant for BRCA2-related cancer predisposition based on the ACMG/AMP criteria applied as specified by the ENIGMA BRCA1/2 VCEP (PVS1, PM5_Strong (PTC), PM3_Strong). -
Pathogenic, no assertion criteria providedclinical testingDepartment of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Sinai Health System-The BRCA2 p.Ser1982Argfs*22 variant was identified in 33 of 11966 proband chromosomes (frequency: 0.003) from individuals or families with breast, ovarian and pancreatic cancer (Agalliu 2009, Borg 2010, Couch 2014, Edwards 2010, Zhang 2011). The variant was also identified in dbSNP (ID: rs80359550) as “With Pathogenic allele”, ClinVar (classified as pathogenic by 34 submitters including Invitae, GeneDx, Counsyl, ARUP and Ambry Genetics), COGR (3 entries classified as pathogenic), COSMIC (1x confirmed somatic in adenocarcinoma of the pancreas), LOVD 3.0 (110 entries classified as affects function), UMD-LSDB (75 entries classified as causal), BIC Database (1090 entries classified as pathogenic), ARUP Laboratories (classified as definitely pathogenic), and the Zhejiang Colon Cancer Database (classified as pathogenic). The variant was not identified in the MutDB database. The variant was also identified by our laboratory in multiple individuals with breast, ovarian or pancreatic cancer. The variant was identified in control databases in 72 of 276978 chromosomes at a frequency of 0.0003 (Genome Aggregation Database Feb 27, 2017). It was observed in the following populations: Ashkenazi Jewish in 59 of 10150 chromosomes (freq: 0.006), Other in 3 of 6460 chromosomes (freq: 0.0005), European (Non-Finnish) in 10 of 126512 chromosomes (freq: 0.00008); it was not observed in the African, East Asian, European (Finnish), Latino, or South Asian populations. The c.5946delT variant is predicted to cause a frameshift, which alters the protein's amino acid sequence beginning at codon 1982 and leads to a premature stop codon 22 codons downstream. This alteration is then predicted to result in a truncated or absent protein and loss of function. Loss of function variants of the BRCA2 gene are an established mechanism of disease in hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and is the type of variant expected to cause the disorder. The truncating BRCA2 6174delT Ashkenazi Jewish founder mutation is associated with a breast cancer risk of 70% by age 70 and identified in the vast majority of Ashkenazi Jewish families with a history of breast and ovarian cancer (Pohlreich 2005, Wu 2005). In addition, a functional study using bacterial artificial chromosomes concluded that this mutation could not rescue lethality in BRCA2-deficient mouse embryonic stem cells, supporting its classification as deleterious (Kuznetsov 2008). In summary, based on the above information, this variant meets our laboratory’s criteria to be classified as pathogenic. Assessment Date: 2018/03/07. -

Pathogenic, criteria provided, single submitterclinical testingGeneKor MSAJan 01, 2020This variant is a deletion of one nucleotide, resulting in a frameshift and the creation of a novel translational stop codon after 22 amino acid residues. The protein product thus produced is truncated and non-functional. Truncating variants in BRCA2 are known to be pathogenic. In the literature, this variant is also known as 6174delT and is a common cause of breast and ovarian cancer in the Ashkenazi Jewish population (PMID: 9042909, 22430266). Moreover, it has been reported in individuals of other ethnicities (PMID: 8758903, 10417300). This variant has been associated with a 43% to 55% risk of breast cancer by age 70, and a 20% to 37% risk of ovarian cancer by age 70 (PMID: 15994883). The mutation database ClinVar contains entries for this variant (Variation ID: 9325). -

The variant is reported as pathogenic by several sources in the ClinVar database (Variation ID: 9325) and is found in the Ashkenazi Jewish population with an allele frequency of 0.6% (61/10,364 alleles) in the Genome Aggregation Database. This variant causes a frameshift by deleting a single nucleotide, so it is predicted to result in a truncated protein or mRNA subject to nonsense-mediated decay. Based on available information, this variant is considered to be pathogenic.

This variant has been reported in multiple individuals with breast cancer and/or ovarian cancer (PMID: 8673092, 9042909, 9150153, 15994883, 22430266, 30152102). It is a well-established pathogenic founder variant in the Ashkenazi Jewish population (PMID: 9042909, 22430266). This alteration is also known as 6174delT in the literature. In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic based on the ACMG/AMP criteria: PVS1, PS4. -

Pathogenic, criteria provided, single submitterclinical testingInvitaeJan 31, 2024This sequence change creates a premature translational stop signal (p.Ser1982Argfs*22) in the BRCA2 gene. It is expected to result in an absent or disrupted protein product. Loss-of-function variants in BRCA2 are known to be pathogenic (PMID: 20104584). This variant is present in population databases (rs80359550, gnomAD 0.6%). This premature translational stop signal has been observed in individual(s) with breast (43% to 55% lifetime risk) and/or ovarian cancer (20% to 37% lifetime risk) (PMID: 8758903, 9042909, 10417300, 15994883, 22430266). It is commonly reported in individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry (PMID: 8758903, 9042909, 10417300, 22430266). This premature translational stop signal has been observed to co-occur in individuals with a different variant in BRCA2 that has been determined to be pathogenic (Invitae), but the significance of this finding is unclear. This variant is also known as 6174delT. ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 9325). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic. -

Pathogenic, criteria provided, single submitterclinical testingWomen's Health and Genetics/Laboratory Corporation of America, LabCorpMay 01, 2019Variant summary: BRCA2 c.5946delT (p.Ser1982ArgfsX22) results in a premature termination codon, predicted to cause a truncation of the encoded protein or absence of the protein due to nonsense mediated decay, which are commonly known mechanisms for disease. The variant allele was found at a frequency of 0.0002765 in 282088 control chromosomes (gnomAD), which does not exceed the estimated maximal expected allele frequency of a pathogenic BRCA2 variant (0.0007503) and was predominantly observed in the Ashkenazi Jewish subpopulation. This variant is a well-established Ashkenazi Jewish founder mutation. The variant, c.5946delT, has been reported in the literature in multiple individuals affected with Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer (Abeliovich_1997, Friedman_1998). These data indicate that the variant is very likely to be associated with disease. At least one publication reports experimental evidence evaluating an impact on protein function (Wu_2005). Multiple ClinVar submissions after 2014 cite the variant as pathogenic. Based on the evidence outlined above, the variant was classified as pathogenic. -
Pathogenic, criteria provided, single submitterclinical testingLaboratory for Molecular Medicine, Mass General Brigham Personalized MedicineJun 07, 2023The p.Ser1982ArgfsX22 variant in BRCA2 is a founder mutation in the Ashkenazi Jewish population (Finkelman 2012 PMID: 22430266) and has been identified in >500 individuals of various ethnicities with BRCA2-associated cancers (Breast Cancer Information Core (BIC) database: https://research.nhgri.nih.gov/projects/bic/). It has also been identified in 0.6% (20/3466) of Ashkenazi Jewish and 0.009% (6/68002) of European chromosomes by gnomAD (http://gnomad.broadinstitute.org, v.3.1.2). This variant is predicted to cause a frameshift, which alters the protein’s amino acid sequence beginning at position 1982 and leads to a premature termination codon 22 amino acids downstream. This alteration is then predicted to lead to a truncated or absent protein. Heterozygous loss of function BRCA2 is an established disease mechanism for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC) syndrome. Additionally, this variant was classified as pathogenic on April 22, 2016 by the ClinGen-approved ENIGMA expert panel (ClinVar variation ID 9325). In summary, this variant meets criteria to be classified as pathogenic for autosomal dominant HBOC. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PVS1, PS4_Strong. -

Pathogenic, criteria provided, single submitterclinical testingAmbry GeneticsJan 13, 2022The c.5946delT (p.S1982Rfs*22) alteration, located in exon 11 (coding exon 10) of the BRCA2 gene, consists of a deletion of one nucleotide at position 5946, causing a translational frameshift with a predicted alternate stop codon after 22 amino acids. This alteration is expected to result in loss of function by premature protein truncation or nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Based on data from gnomAD, this allele has an overall frequency of 0.028% (78/282088) total alleles studied. The highest observed frequency was 0.589% (61/10364) of Ashkenazi Jewish alleles. This variant is one of the well-described Ashkenazi Jewish founder mutations and has been reported in numerous families affected with breast, ovarian, prostate, pancreatic, and other HBOC-related cancers (Agalliu, 2009; Walsh, 2011; Johnston, 2012; Bayraktar, 2012; George, 2013; Lucas, 2013; Salo-Mullen, 2015; Susswein, 2016). Another study indicated that carriers of the c.5946delT variant may have a lower relative risk for breast cancer when compared to carriers of other non-Ashkenazi Jewish BRCA2 likely pathogenic/pathogenic variants (Finkelman, 2012). This variant is also designated as 6174delT in published literature. Based on the available evidence, this alteration is classified as pathogenic. -

Pathogenic, criteria provided, single submitterclinical testingColor Diagnostics, LLC DBA Color HealthMar 06, 2023This variant deletes 1 nucleotide in exon 11 of the BRCA2 gene, causing a frameshift and a premature translational stop signal. This variant is also known as 6174delT in the literature. This variant is expected to result in an absent or non-functional protein product. Functional studies have reported that this variant impacts BRCA2 function in homology-directed repair and other ancillary assays (PMID: 15695382, 18607349). This variant is a well-known founder mutation in the Ashkenazi Jewish population and occurs at 0.6-1.52% minor allele frequency (PMID: 8673092, 30152102). This variant has been reported in dozens of individuals affected with breast and/or ovarian cancer in Ashkenazi Jewish and in non-Ashkenazi Jewish populations (PMID: 8524414, 8673091, 8673092, 8758903, 8898735, 8841191, 9145676, 12473589, 14576434, 20104584, 21324516, 22006311, 22430266, 28944232, 29084914, 29433453). This variant has been reported with cosegregation likelihood ratio for pathogenicity of over 1,000 (PMID: 15695382) and in a breast cancer case-control meta-analysis in 26/60440 cases and 8/53453 unaffected individuals with OR 2.874 (95%CI 1.301 to 6.349) (PMID: 33471991; Leiden Open Variation Database DB-ID BRCA2_000149). The risk of female breast cancer among carriers of this mutation is 43-55% by age 70, and the risk of ovarian cancer is 18-37% by age 70 (PMID: 9145676, 15994883, 22430266). This variant has been identified in 78/282088 chromosomes in the general population (61/10364 Ashkenazi Jewish chromosomes) by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD). Loss of BRCA2 function is a known mechanism of disease (clinicalgenome.org). Based on the available evidence, this variant is classified as Pathogenic. -

Pathogenic, criteria provided, single submitterclinical testingIllumina Laboratory Services, IlluminaApr 28, 2017The BRCA2 c.5946delT (p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22) variant, more commonly known as c.6174delT, results in a frameshift and premature termination of the protein. The p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22 variant is a well-described founder variant in the BRCA2 gene that is prevalent in the Ashkenazi Jewish and Icelandic populations, with a carrier frequency of ~1.5% (Roa et al. 1996; Neuhausen et al. 1996). The variant has been shown to occur in approximately eight percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 42 years (Neuhausen et al. 1996; Oddoux et al. 1996; Petrucelli et al. 2010; Finkelman et al. 2012). By the age of 70, 43% of individuals who carry this variant are predicted to develop breast cancer and 20% are predicted to develop ovarian cancer (Struewing et al. 1997; King et al. 2003). Across a selection of the literature, the p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22 variant has been identified in 55 of 1,272 (4%) individuals with breast cancer, 44 of 382 (11.5%) individuals with ovarian cancer, and at least 118 of 9,658 (1.2%) Ashkenazi Jewish individuals from the general population (Couch et al. 1996; Roa et al. 1996; Neuhausen et al. 1996; Oddoux et al. 1996; Struewing et al. 1997; Satagopan et al. 2002; King et al. 2003). Additionally, the p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22 variant has been identified in a compound heterozygous state in four individuals, including two cousins, with Fanconi anemia and brain tumors from three different Ashkenazi Jewish families (Offit et al. 2003; Alter et al. 2007). The p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22 variant was absent from at least 1,726 non-Ashkenazi Jewish controls and is reported at a frequency of 0.00048 in the European (non-Finnish) population of the Exome Aggregation Consortium. Functional studies demonstrated decreased cell viability and survival in carriers of the p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22 variant (Wu et al. 2005). The variant protein was shown to be localized in the cytoplasm and not in the nucleus. The p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22 variant is predicted to result in truncation of approximately 41% of the BRCA2 protein, which would remove two signals required for nuclear localization and represents a likely mode of pathogenicity for the variant (Spain et al. 1999). In a study in mouse embryonic stem cells, the p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22 variant failed to rescue the loss of endogenous BRCA2 (Kuznetsov et al. 2008). Based on the collective evidence, the p.Ser1982ArgfsTer22 variant is classified as pathogenic for BRCA2-related disorders. This variant was observed by ICSL as part of a predisposition screen in an ostensibly healthy population. -
