Microtubule-Associated Protein Tau Isoform 1 (TAU)
Description:
Human Tau protein (a.k.a., “microtubule-associated protein tau isoform 1”) is a 78.902 kD protein (758aa) expressed in cortical neurons of the CNS. In normal individuals, tau contains moderate degrees of phosphorylation on various serine and threonine residues scattered throughout the N-terminal half of this protein. However in various neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Tau becomes hyperphosphorylated on these residues, leading to the pathological formation of intracellular “neurofibrillary tangles.” Such tangles are hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as various other neurodegenerative diseases, collectively known as the “tauopathies.”
