The reported mutations at codon 715 result in the replacement of the amino acid valine with either alanine or methionine. This amino acid position is not included within the Aβ40 or Aβ42 sequence, but these mutations have been shown to alter APP processing such that levels of these two peptides are altered. Specifically, both the V715M and the V715A mutations have been reported to increase the Aβ42/Aβ40 ratio.
