Amongst these Volga Germans, there were various families with early onset AD, and their DNA samples held great interest for researchers. Once again, Tanzi’s team found the genetic mutation responsible for causing the early onset AD in the Volga Germans, which was isolated on the gene that codes presenilin 2 protein on chromosome 1 . The discoveries of these three genetic mutations, the AβPP gene, the PS1 gene and the PS2 gene, were enormously valuable in learning how the lesions of AD are created and how to avoid them.
