Although we did not make a functional study, this variant is a null variant and classified as a likely pathogenic variant due to ACMG
ACOG ve ACMG
tarafindan onerilen 23 mutasyonlu panelde bu mutasyon 2004 yilindan bu yana yer almamaktadir, bunun nedeni ilgili mutasyonun Amerika kitasinda gozlenme oraninin %0,5'den daha az olmasidir (12, 25).

It was in this context that the ACMG
recommended that geneticists
Frameshift type mutations, such as this one, constitute very strong pathogenic criteria according to the ACMG
classification of sequencing variants, because they modify the length of the protein by inserting premature stop codons with the shift of the reading frame; therefore, it is usually related to severe phenotypes in monogenic diseases (10).
Lastly, filtered variants were evaluated according to the ACMG
Standards and Guidelines recommendations (8).
In addition, whereas a large amount of the marketing materials implies the test was developed in line with professional recommendations, none in fact complies with ACOG and ACMG
First, it introduces the topic and the professional obligations imposed by the American College of Medical Genetics ("ACMG
According to the stringent ACMG
guideline and based on the available evidence, 10 of them were classified as pathogenic; this will expand the causative mutation spectrum of DH in Chinese patients.
