Mutations

MAPT S447P

Overview

Pathogenicity: Frontotemporal Dementia : Not Pathogenic
Clinical Phenotype: None
Reference Assembly: GRCh37 (105)
Position: Chr17:44067400 T>C
dbSNP ID: rs10445337
Coding/Non-Coding: Coding
Mutation Type: Point, Missense
Codon Change: TCC to CCC
Reference Isoform: Tau Isoform PNS Tau (758 aa)
Genomic Region: Exon 6

Findings

This variant has been reported in controls and is thought to be benign (Poorkaj et al., 1998). The polymorphism resides in exon 6, which is excluded from the major tau isoforms expressed in the human brain. Exon 6 is included in PNS-tau, a long isoform of tau with 758 amino acids. The numerical position of this variant (447) corresponds to its position in this isoform. In the literature this variant has also been referred to as S53P or Ser53Pro (e.g., Poorkaj et al., 1998).

Neuropathology

Not applicable.

Biological Effect

Unknown.
