Technical Data
Tau (Tau Protein, Microtubule-associated Protein Tau, MAPT, MAPTL, DDPAC, FLJ31424, FTDP-17, MGC138549, MSTD, MTBT1, MTBT2, Neurofibrillary Tangle Protein, Paired Helical Filament-tau, PHF-tau, PPND)
Tau is the major microtubule-associated protein in neuronal axons that regulates microtubule stability, neurite outgrowth, and other microtubule -dependent functions. C-terminus of tau protein binds axonal microtubules while the N-terminus binds neural plasma membrane components, suggesting its role as a linker protein between both. Six tau isoforms are produced in adult human brain by alternative mRNA splicing from a single gene. Filamentous tau protein deposits are the defining characteristic of various neurodegenerative diseases, many of which are frontotemporal dementias or movement disorders, such as Pick's disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, and corticobasal degeneration. Human tau gene is mapped to chromosome 17q21.1.
