This mutation was first reported in a 48-year-old Italian woman with a three-year history of progressive memory impairment. She did not have a family history of dementia, so the mutation may have arisen de novo; however, it may have been transmitted through the maternal line. The proband’s mother and maternal grandmother died in their 40s from unrelated causes (bone cancer and an accident, respectively), so it is not known whether they would have developed dementia had they lived. The mutation was absent in the patient’s father and in 100 healthy unrelated controls (La Bella et al., 2004).

This mutation was also detected in the proband of a family known as ANG 008, in which four family members were also affected by dementia. This study reported the age of onset as 40 to 47 years. Family members met NINCDS-ADRDA criteria for Alzheimer’s disease, but postmortem confirmation of the diagnosis was not available (Raux et al., 2005). This family was also described in a large French study. The clinical data for five affected family members was summarized as disease onset at age 38 to 44 (younger than previously reported), and duration ranging from three to five years. DNA from family members was not available, therefore segregation with disease could not be determined.



Biological Effect

Unknown. The T116I mutation has been classified as definitely pathogenic according to the algorithm proposed by Guerreiro et al., 2010 (Wallon et al., 2012).
