Findings

This mutation was originally identified in a French family referred to as SAL 508. The three affected individuals, across three generations, presented with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease with onset ranging from 53 to 58 years of age. Autosomal-dominant transmission was confirmed by segregation analysis (Campion et al., 1995). This mutation was reported in 1995, the same year that the presenilin-1 gene was cloned (Sherrington et al., 1995).

Neuropathology

Unknown.

Biological Effect

In CHO and HEK-293 cells expressing APP695, the mutation resulted in a slightly lower ratio of secreted Aβ42/Aβ40 (Shioi et al., 2007).
