Findings

This mutation was found in a large French study reporting 56 new families with autosomal-dominant early onset Alzheimer's disease. All probands met NINCDS-ADRDA criteria for probable AD and had a family history of disease (Wallon et al., 2012).

The L150P mutation was detected in one individual in a family with six affected individuals. Only the genotype of the proband is known, therefore segregation with disease could not be determined. Age of onset in this family ranged from 54 to 65 years, with a duration of five to 10 years. The mutation was classified as probably pathogenic according to the algorithm proposed by Guerreiro et al., 2010.

Neuropathology

Unknown.

Biological Effect

In an in vitro assay using purified proteins to test the ability of this mutant to cleave the APP-C99 substrate, Aβ42 production was drastically reduced and Aβ40 production was undetectable (Sun et al., 2017).

 

Research Models

Induced pluripotent stem cells were generated from skin fibroblasts isolated from a 58-year-old man carrying the mutation (Tubsuwan et al., 2016). An isogenic control line, with the mutation corrected using CRISPR/Cas9, is also available (Poon et al., 2016).
