|Abstract||Microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT) positive neuropathology is the characteristic feature of majority of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) cases, which is due to the mutations or haplotypic variations in the gene encoding MAPT (MAPT). The present study was aimed at determining the frequency of genetic variations in MAPT in a south Indian FTD cohort. The frequency of mutations were determined in 116 FTD, 8 progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and 3 corticobasal syndrome (CBS) patients and haplotype diversity were analyzed in a study cohort comprising 116 FTD, 8 PSP, 3 CBS, 194 other dementia groups, 78 mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and 130 cognitively normal individuals and report no pathogenic mutations in FTD/PSP/CBS or haplotypic association with disease risk in FTD or other dementia patients. These findings suggest that there may be other genetic or epigenetic factors contributing to the pathogenesis of FTD in the south Indian population.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
