Findings

This rare sequence variant was first reported in an analysis of the tau gene in a patient series. It was absent in the 95 controls tested (Houlden et al., 1999). It was later identified in one Chinese individual from the Oroqen population (Guerreiro et al., 2010).

Neuropathology

Not applicable.

Biological Effect

Unknown.
