Clinical Phenotype: Alzheimer's Disease
Reference Assembly: GRCh37 (105)
Position: Chr14:73637697 G>A
dbSNP ID: rs63750831
Coding/Non-Coding: Coding
Genomic Region: Exon 4
Mutation Type: Point, Missense
Codon Change: GTG to ATG

Findings

This mutation was identified in a single patient from Colombia diagnosed with probable Alzheimer’s disease according to NINCDS-ADRDA criteria. The patient, known as patient 189, experienced symptom onset at age 53, but had no family history of dementia. Mutation segregation with the disease could not be determined, as DNA from family members was unavailable. The reporting authors suspected pathogenicity based on the conservation of the amino acid in other species and the absence of the mutation in 53 control subjects (Arango et al., 2001).
