Mutations

MAPT P512H

Overview

Pathogenicity: Alzheimer's Disease : Not Pathogenic
Clinical Phenotype: Alzheimer's Disease
Reference Assembly: GRCh37/hg19
Position: Chr17:44071317 C>A
dbSNP ID: rs192236920
Coding/Non-Coding: Coding
Mutation Type: Point, Missense
Codon Change: CCC to CAC
Reference Isoform: Tau Isoform Tau-G (776 aa)
Genomic Region: Exon 8

Findings

This variant was detected in a Caucasian from Italy who met clinical criteria for probable Alzheimer’s disease (Piccoli et al., 2016). Further clinical details were not reported. This rare variant is thought to be benign. It is found at low frequency in the ExAC database.

Note, this variant is named P512H in reference to the longest isoform of tau, Tau-G (P10636-9), which is 776 amino acids long. This amino acid is not present in isoform Tau-F (P10636-8) which is 441 amino acids long, and which is commonly used to describe the position of mutations in the tau protein.

Neuropathology

Not applicable.

Biological Effect

In silico this variant has been predicted probably damaging by PolyPhen and tolerated by SIFT.
