This variant was detected in an individual with apparently sporadic AD (Sala Frigerio et al., 2015). There was no family history of dementia. Other than a diagnosis of AD, clinical details related to this individual were not reported.
The pathogenicity of this variant is unclear; it may be simply a rare polymorphism. PolyPhen-2 predicts that it is benign in silico.
