Findings

This mutation involves the deletion of the first nucleotide in the A394 codon resulting in a frameshift that creates a stop codon eight amino acids downstream. It was identified in a woman diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease from a large cohort study in South China in which 14 genes associated with neurodegenerative dementias from 1795 patients were sequenced (Jiao et al., 2021). Her age at onset was 68 years and her APOE genotype was APOE E3/E3. She had a family history of AD. Memory loss, as well as mental and behavioral changes were reported. This variant was absent from the gnomAD variant database (gnomAD v2.1.1, Oct 2021).
