Findings

Neuropathology
In one individual, neuropathology was found to be consistent with AD, including numerous neuritic plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in the hippocampus and neocortex.

Biological Effect
Although the biological effects of this mutation remain unknown, its position is consistent with the helical alignment of pathogenic mutations in transmembrane domain 5.
