Abstract

Progranulin (PGRN) mutations account for an average of 15% of familial frontotemporal dementia (FTD) cases and 20% of total FTD cases worldwide. Here, we investigated the frequency of PGRN mutations in FTD patients (n = 116) from a clinical cohort of south India and detected one novel mutation located on exon 12 in a familial behavioral variant FTD patient (accounting for ∼1% of total FTD cases and 6% of familial FTD cases). This mutation was found to introduce a premature termination codon and the prematurely terminated messenger RNA may probably undergo nonsense-mediated decay. In enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, the proband showed significantly reduced level of plasma PGRN (28 ng/mL) compared with controls (150 ± 38 ng/mL), which implicates haploinsufficiency as the pathogenic mechanism.
