Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B IP IH IF
Tau is a type II microtubule associated protein or MAP. Alternative splicing gives rise to 4–5 different forms of the tau protein (55–62kD). Tau is located in the axons and dendrites of nerve cells where it accelerates tubulin polymerization and crosslinks microtubule fibers into stabilized bundles promoting axon growth. It can also induce axon-like projections when expressed at high level in non-neuronal cells. All 6 tau isoforms of the CNS are expressed mainly in axons of the normal brain, but to a lesser extent tau may also be found in astrocytes. A 7th isoform, ‘Big Tau’, is expressed in peripheral nervous system. Tau is altered in Alzheimer’s disease to form paired helical filaments in neurofibrillary tangles, neurofilament threads and senile plaque neurites.
