Mutations

PSEN2 R29H

Overview

Pathogenicity: Alzheimer's Disease : Not Pathogenic
Clinical Phenotype: None
Coding/Non-Coding: Coding
Genomic Region: Exon 3
Mutation Type: Point
Codon Change: CGC to CAC

Findings

This variant was identified in one African individual from the Mandenka population. It alters a residue that is conserved between PSEN1 and PSEN2, but the functional effect of this change is not known (Guerreiro et al., 2010).

Neuropathology

Not applicable.

Biological Effect

Unknown.
