ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neurobiolaging.2018.04.003||Abstract:||To identify genes associated with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) in South-East Asia, targeted exome sequencing and C9orf72 genotyping was performed in 198 subjects (52 patients with FTD and 146 healthy controls) who were screened for mutations in 12 FTD-associated genes. We detected a homozygous TREM2 R47C mutation in a patient with behavioral variant FTD without bone cysts or bone-associated phenotype. Two novel nonsense GRN mutations in 3 FTD patients from the Philippines were detected, but no known pathogenic mutations in other FTD-associated genes were found. In 45 subjects screened for C9orf72 repeat expansions, no pathogenic expansion (?30 repeats) was identified, but there was a higher proportion of intermediate length (?10�29 repeats) alleles in patients compared with controls (8/90 alleles, 8.9% vs. 9/164 alleles, 5.5%). Overall, we detected a mutation rate of 7.7% (4/52 patients) in our cohort. Given recent findings of enrichment of rare TREM2 variants (including R47C) in Alzheimer's disease, it is notable that we detected a homozygous TREM2 R47C carrier presenting with an FTD rather than an Alzheimer's disease phenotype. � 2018 Elsevier Inc.||Source Title:||Neurobiology of Aging||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/150208||ISSN:||1974580||DOI:||10.1016/j.neurobiolaging.2018.04.003|
