Gene Information

human ... MAPT(4137)

General description

Tau (τ), also known as microtubule associated protein tau (MAPT) is encoded by the gene mapped on human chromosome 17q21.3. It is highly expressed in neurons but is most prominent in axons. Tau is a heat stable microtubule associated protein (MAP) with a molecular weight of 55- 65 kDa.
Tau (τ), also known as MAPT (microtubule associated protein tau) is encoded by the gene mapped on human chromosome 17q21.3. It is highly expressed in neurons but is most prominent in axons.


The antibody shows wide species reactivity. Anti-τ does not react with MAP1, MAP2 or tubulin. the antibody reacts with τ, one of the two major classes of heat stable microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs).


τ proteins from chicken embryo brain microtubules.


Anti-τ (Tau) antibody produced in rabbit has been used as a primary antibody in western blotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Removal of Tau (τ) results in developmental delay and learning disability. It participates in the pathology of Alzheimer′s disease (AD). Tau helps in the assembly and maintenance of microtubule structure.
Variation in the MAPT gene encoding tau protein results in frontotemporal dementia. Tau protein acts as a substrate for many kinases.
