Mutations

TREM2 S116C

Overview

Pathogenicity: Alzheimer's Disease : Unclear Pathogenicity, Frontotemporal Dementia : Unclear Pathogenicity
Reference Assembly: GRCh37/hg19
Position: Chr6:41129046 A>T
dbSNP ID: NA
Coding/Non-Coding: Coding
Mutation Type: Point, Missense
Codon Change: AGT to TGT
Reference Isoform: TREM2 Isoform 1 (230 aa)
Genomic Region: Exon 2

Findings

In an Italian study, the S116C variant was found in none of 194 Alzheimer’s patients, one of 352 FTD patients, and none of 484 cognitively healthy controls (Borroni et al., 2014).

Neuropathology

No data.

Biological Effect

Cell-surface expression of the S116C variant was similar to that of wild-type TREM2 heterologously expressed in HEK293 cells (Varnum et al., 2017).
