Mutations

MAPT P511R

Overview

Pathogenicity: Frontotemporal Dementia : Benign
Clinical Phenotype: None
Reference Assembly: GRCh37/hg19
Position: Chr17:44071314 C>G
dbSNP ID: rs768343783
Coding/Non-Coding: Coding
Mutation Type: Point, Missense
Codon Change: CCA to CGA
Reference Isoform: Tau Isoform Tau-G (776 aa)
Genomic Region: Exon 10

Findings

This variant was detected in one out of 376 control cases from the KORA-Age cohort, based in Germany (Schulte et al., 2015). Limited information is available on this person, but according to a description of the cohort as a whole, all individuals were Caucasian and cognitively healthy at age 65 or older (Schulte et al., 2012).

Note that this variant is not conserved in the 441 amino acid long isoform that is commonly used as the reference for naming mutations in MAPT. The 511 position here is in reference to tau isoform G (P10636-9), aka isoform 6 (NP_001116538.2), which is 776 amino acids in length.
