Description

General description



ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.

Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Specificity

Clone PC1C6 is a ZooMAb mouse recombinant monoclonal antibody that specifically detects Microtubule-associated protein tau (Tau).

Immunogen

Purified denatured bovine microtubule associated proteins.

Application

Anti-Tau-1, clone PC1C6 ZooMAb, Cat. No. ZMS3420, is a recombinant Mouse monoclonal antibody that specifically targets Tau-1 protein and is tested for use in Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), and Western Blotting.

Western Blotting Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot detected Tau-1 in mouse brain tissue lysate.

Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected Tau-1 in mouse brain and rat brain tissue sections.

Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected Tau-1 in Rat E18 cortical cells.

Note: Actual optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user as specimens, and experimental conditions may vary with the end user

Target description

Microtubule-associated protein tau (UniProt: P29172; also known as Neurofibrillary tangle protein, Paired helical filament-tau, PHF-tau) is encoded by the MAPT (TAU) gene (Gene ID: 281296) in bovine species. Microtubule-associated protein tau is shown to be expressed in neurons. It is mostly found in axons, in the cytosol, and in association with plasma membrane components. Twenty isoforms of bovine Tau have been described that are generated by alternative splicing. Tau proteins promote microtubule assembly and stability and may also be involved in the establishment and maintenance of neuronal polarity. The C-terminus binds axonal microtubules while the N-terminus binds neural plasma membrane components, thus serving as a linker protein between both. The short isoforms are reported to allow plasticity of the cytoskeleton whereas the longer isoforms may preferentially play a role in its stabilization. In Alzheimer disease (AD), the neuronal cytoskeleton in the brain is progressively disrupted and replaced by tangles of paired helical filaments (PHF) and straight filaments, mainly composed of hyperphosphorylated forms of Tau. In AD brain Tau accumulates in both the somatodendritic and axonal domains of neurons and it also accumulates in the soma as neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs). Tau oligomers are reported to be neurotoxic when applied extracellularly to cultured neuronal cells and can induce neurodegeneration and synaptic and mitochondrial dysfunction in vivo. It has been reported that most of the C-terminus of Tau in PHFs can be cleaved by trypsin, however the TauC4 region is highly resistant to trypsin action. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
