Gene Information

human ... MAPT(4137)

General description

Anti-TAU antibody detects endogenous levels of total TAU protein.
MAPT (microtubule associated protein tau) is located on human chromosome 17q21.3. It is expressed in neurons but is most prominent in axons.


The antiserum was produced against synthesized peptide derived from human Tau.

Immunogen Range: 266-315

Biochem/physiol Actions

Removal of MAPT results in developmental delay and learning disability. It participates in the pathology of Alzheimer′s disease (AD). It helps in the assembly and maintenance of microtubule structure.

Features and Benefits

Alzheimer's disease is a tauopathy characterized by pathological fibrillization of tau protein to form the paired helical filaments (PHFs), which constitute neurofibrillary tangles. The methylthioninium (MT) moiety reverses the proteolytic stability of the PHF core and is in clinical development...
