Product Description

This antibody recognizes tau proteins of molecular weight 45-68 kDa. Tau proteins stabilize microtubules by promote the interaction and assembly of tubulin monomers into microtubules. The TAU-5 monoclonal antibody identifies and binds to the phosphorylated as well as non-phosphorylated forms of tau. Tau proteins belong to members of the microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) that stabilize neuronal cell microtubules in cell processes, maintainence of cell polarity and molecular intracellular transport. Six isoforms, generated from a single Tau gene by alternative splicing during mRNA processing ranging from 352 to 441 amino acids in the human central nervous system. In Alzheimer’s disease, unusually phosphorylated, tau proteins aggregate into paired helical filaments and loose their ability to maintain the microtubule tracks. Missense Tau mutations in individuals with a type of frontotemporal dementia, FTDP 17, have been discovered
