The possibility of an interaction of multiple genes has been speculated in pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Because we have recently cloned a novel gene S182 bearing five different missense mutations which segregate with early-onset familial AD, we sought the frequency of these mutations in familial and sporadic late-onset AD to clarify the incidence of these mutations in the disease. The current study showed lack of these mutations in 118 independent subjects affected with late-onset Alzheimer's disease.
