Technical Data
TAU, CT (Microtubule-associated Protein Tau, Neurofibrillary Tangle Protein, Paired Helical Filament-Tau, PHF-tau, MAPTL, MTBT1, TAU, MAPT)
The microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT) gene transcript undergoes complex, regulated alternative splicing, giving rise to several mRNA species. MAPT transcripts are differentially expressed in the nervous system, depending on stage of neuronal maturation and neuron type. MAPT gene mutations result in several neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, Pick's disease, frontotemporal dementia, cortico-basal degeneration and progressive supranuclear palsy.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:1,000
Western Blot: 1:50-1:1000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:50-1:100
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
