General description

Tau proteins are known as microtubule-associated phosphoprotein (MAP) and express mainly in neurons of central nervous system. It has a crucial role in tubulin polymerization and facilitates microtubules assembly and stability. The biological activity of tau proteins depends on degree of its phosphorylation. Anti-phospho-Tau (pSer199/202) antibody can be used in microarray and western blotting. It can also be used in immunoblotting. Rabbit anti- phospho-Tau (pSer199/202) antibody reacts specifically with human Tau (pSer199/202) (45-68 kD).
Tau (τ), also known as MAPT (microtubule associated protein tau), is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 17q21.3. It is highly expressed in neurons, but is most prominent in axons.

Immunogen

chemically synthesized phosphopeptide derived from the region of human tau that contains serine199 and serine202.

Application

Anti-phospho-Tau (pSer199/202) antibody (diluted 1:1000 in PBS containing 0.3% Triton X-100 and 0.5% BSA) can be used in immunocytochemistry for identification of protein aggregates. It can also be used as primary antibody (diluted 1: 3000) in immunohistochemistry.
Anti-phospho-Tau (pSer199/202) antibody produced in rabbit has been used in:
  • immunocytochemistry
  • immunohistochemistry
  • western blot

Biochem/physiol Actions

Tau (τ) plays an essential role in the assembly and maintenance of microtubule structure. Deletion of tau (τ) results in developmental delay and learning disability. The gene expression is associated with the development of Alzheimer′s disease (AD). Genetic variation in τ gene increases the risk of susceptibility to the sporadic tauopathies, progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and corticobasal degeneration.

Physical form

Solution in 100 μl Dulbecco′s phosphate buffered saline (without Mg2+ and Ca2+), pH 7.3, 50% glycerol, containing 1.0 mg/ml BSA (IgG, protease free) and 0.05% sodium azide. The amount of antibody is sufficient for 10 immunoblots.

Protein aggregates containing alpha-synuclein, beta-amyloid and hyperphosphorylated tau are commonly found during neurodegenerative processes which is often accompanied by the impairment of mitochondrial complex I respiratory chain and dysfunction of cellular systems of protein degradation. In view of this, we...

Amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) are hallmark lesions of Alzheimer's disease (AD) related to β-amyloid (Aβ) deposition and intraneuronal phosphorylated tau (pTau) accumulation. Sortilin C-terminal fragments (shortened as "sorfra") can deposit as senile plaque-like lesions within AD brains. The...
