Microtubule Associated Proteins (MAPS) bind to the tubulin subunits of microtubule structures and regulate their functional stability. In the cell MAPs bind to monomer and multimerized tubulin. MAP binding to multimerized tubulin further stabilizes the formation of higher order microtubulin structures. MAP binding to microtubule structures is mediated through phosporylation through Microtubule Affinity Regulated Kinase (MARK). Phosphorylation releases MAPs bound to microtubules, destabilizing the structure, driving it toward disassembly. There are predominately two MAP types, I, II. Type II MAP includes MAP2, MAP4 and tau and are found in nervous tissue. Six tau isoforms exist in brain tissue, and they are distinguished by their number of binding domains. Three isoforms have three binding domains and the other three have four binding domains. The binding domains are located in the carboxy-terminus of the protein and are positively-charged. The isoforms with four binding domains are better at stabilizing microtubules than those with three binding domains.
Catalog #T1030-40A1
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsWestern Blot: 1:1000-1:10,000. Detects Tau (4-repeat isoform RD4) in a rat brain cytosolic fraction. Rat brain cytosol fraction was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with T1030-40A1. Proteins were visualized using an IgG (HRP) goat anti-mouse and a chemiluminescence detection system.
Immunohistochemistry: Detects Tau (4-repeat isoform RD4) in autoclaved paraffin brain sections (1-2).
Differential Detection of Tauopathies: See reference 2.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Recommended Secondary Antibodies:
I1904-06C: IgG, H&L (HRP) (X-Adsorbed) Pab Gt xMo
I1904-06H: IgG, H&L (HRP) (X-Adsorbed) Pab Gt xMo
