General description

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.


chemically synthesized phosphopeptide derived from the region of human tau that contains serine262.

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. Measurement of phosphorylated tau (P-tau) levels in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) acts a potential marker for differentiation between AD and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).

Physical form

Supplied in 100 μL of Dulbecco′s phosphate buffered saline (without Mg2+ and Ca2+), pH 7.3, with 50% glycerol, 1.0 mg/mL BSA (IgG, protease free) and 0.05% sodium azide.

Tau is a microtubule-associated protein that is functionally modulated by phosphorylation and hyperphosphorylated in several neurodegenerative diseases. Because phosphorylation regulates both normal and pathological tau functioning, it is of great interest to identify the signalling pathways and enzymes capable of...
