Abstract

We report a novel missense mutation of the Notch3 gene in a Japanese family with CADASIL. The Cys49Gly mutation in this family is located in exon 2 of the Notch3 gene. Most of the documented Notch3 gene mutations occur in exons 3 or 4. On the other hand, there are few reports around the world of mutations in exon 2 of the Notch3 gene, and this is the first report of a mutation in exon 2 of the gene in a Japanese family. In general, CADASIL mutations involve a cysteine residue. Such mutations may influence the tertiary structure of the Notch3 protein, resulting in protein dysfunction. Thus, the CADASIL in the present case may be a consequence of the mutation in exon 2 causing a structural change in the Notch3 protein.
