Target/Specificity TAU antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. Multiple isoforms of TAU are known to exist; this antibody will only detect the two longest isoforms (WB band observed at approx. 90kDa).
Reconstitution & Storage Long term: -20°C; Short term: +4°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.
PrecautionsMAPT / Tau Antibody (N-Terminus) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name MAPT
Synonyms MAPTL, MTBT1, TAU
Function Promotes microtubule assembly and stability, and might 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, suggesting that tau functions as a linker protein between both. Axonal polarity is predetermined by TAU/MAPT localization (in the neuronal cell) in the domain of the cell body defined by the centrosome. The short isoforms allow plasticity of the cytoskeleton whereas the longer isoforms may preferentially play a role in its stabilization.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, cytosol. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cell projection, axon. Note=Mostly found in the axons of neurons, in the cytosol and in association with plasma membrane components
Tissue Location Expressed in neurons. Isoform PNS-tau is expressed in the peripheral nervous system while the others are expressed in the central nervous system
