|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Chicken, Bovine|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. Other applications have not been determined. The antibody recognizes mainly the truncated Tau (~30 kDa) in sample from human, mouse and rat origins. Other isoforms of Tau at 35 kDa, 60 kDa and 80 kDa can also be recognized. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.|
|Other Names||tau , TAU , MAPT , MAPTL , FTDP-17 , MSTD , MGC138549 , PPND , MTBT2|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-TAU polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|

Tau, a microtubule-binding protein which serves to stabilize microtubules in growing axons, is found to be hyperphosphorylated in paired helical filaments (PHF), the major fibrous component of neurofibrillary lesions associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Hyperphosphorylation of Tau is tho µght to be the critical event leading to the assembly of PHF. Six Tau protein isoforms have been identified, all of which are phosphorylated by GSK3. This presents the possibility that miscues in GSK3 signaling contribute to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
