Mutations

TREM2 L72V

Overview

Pathogenicity: Alzheimer's Disease : Unclear Pathogenicity
Reference Assembly: GRCh37/hg19
Position: Chr6:41129178 C>G
dbSNP ID: rs765933093
Coding/Non-Coding: Coding
Mutation Type: Point, Missense
Codon Change: CTG to GTG
Reference Isoform: TREM2 Isoform 1 (230 aa)
Genomic Region: Exon 2

Findings

The L72V variant was found in one of 233 cognitively healthy controls and in none of 210 Alzheimer’s patients in a North American study (Ghani et al., 2016).

Neuropathology

No data.

Biological Effect

The leucine-to-valine substitution at amino acid 72 was predicted by SIFT to be tolerated but by Polyphen2 to be damaging (Ghani et al., 2016).
