Findings

This mutation was found in a Chinese family with a strong history of dementia (Shea et al., 2016). The family consisted of six siblings who were all affected, along with their father, who also had a clinical history consistent with AD. AD was diagnosed according to the NINCDS-ADRDA criteria for possible or probable disease. The three living siblings were all carriers of the L386I mutation, suggesting that the mutation segregates with disease. The average age of onset for the siblings was 49.8 years (range 45-60). Disease in this family presented as early memory problems, amnesia, and spatial disorientation. One of the siblings also developed epilepsy. 

Neuropathology

Unknown. MRI imaging of two of the siblings demonstrated bilateral hippocampal atrophy, while a third sibling had severe medial temporal lobe atrophy.

Biological Effect

In silico analysis predicts that this mutation is damaging to protein function. The site of the F386I mutation is adjacent to D385, a critical aspartate in the active site.
