Findings

This variant was detected in a large Spanish kindred with familial late-onset Alzheimer's disease. The proband began experiencing memory impairment at age 80 and was diagnosed with AD. The proband had three affected siblings and a cousin, but the variant did not segregate with the disease. In addition, the variant was found in one of 165 unrelated individuals and is thought to be a rare polymorphism (Lleó et al., 2002).

Neuropathology

Not applicable.

Biological Effect

Unknown. The P334R residue is not conserved in PSEN1.
