Position: Chr17:44087751 G>A
dbSNP ID: NA
Mutation Type: Point, Missense

This rare variant was found in a genetic screen of 282 control samples from the human genome diversity panel (Guerreiro et al., 2010). It was identified in one Mozabite individual from North Africa. This individual also carried a rare variant in the progranulin gene (R19W).
Unknown. Predicted in silico to be benign and well-tolerated by PolyPhen and SIFT (Guerreiro et al., 2010).
