Findings

This variant was identified in two members of a Japanese family suffering from Alzheimer's disease. They both had progressive memory loss with disorientation starting at approximately 50 years of age and developed myoclonus with frequent tonic-clonic seizures several years later. The mutation was identified in the proband by direct sequencing of PSEN1. It was found in the other affected individual, but not in an unaffected family member, nor in a group of Japanese controls. Moreover, the variant was absent from the gnomAD variant database (gnomAD v2.1.1, July 2021).

Neuropathology

Neuropathological data are unavailable, but MRI revealed diffuse cerebral atrophy and SPECT showed severe cortical hypoperfusion.

Biological Effect

Unknown. However, several in silico algorithms (SIFT, Polyphen-2, LRT, MutationTaster, MutationAssessor, FATHMM, PROVEAN, CADD, REVEL, and Reve in the VarCards database) predicted this variant is damaging (Xiao et al., 2021).
