Alzheimer’s disease (AD) age of onset (ADAOO) varies greatly between individuals, with unique causal mutations suggesting the role of modifying genetic and environmental interactions. We analyzed ~ 50 000 common and rare functional genomic variants from 71 individuals of the ‘Paisa’ pedigree, the world’s largest pedigree segregating a severe form of early-onset AD, who were affected carriers of the fully penetrant E280A mutation in the presenilin-1 (PSEN1) gene. Affected carriers with ages at...[Show more]
