c.(1947 + 10G > A) NA NA Polymorphism
  1. PolyPhen-2 score ranges from 0 to 1, with mutations qualitatively appraised as PrD (probably damaging), PoD (possibly damaging), or B (benign). MutationTaster analyses the probability that a variant will be disease-causing or is a polymorphism. SIFT scores range from 0 to 1: the amino acid substitution is predicted as damaging if the score is ≤ 0.05, and tolerated if the score is > 0.05. NA not possible to analyze
