|Description||In addition to tubulin, microtubules have other components named Microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs), which include the high molecular MAPs (200-400 kDa) and the Tau proteins (55-70 kDa). These proteins co-purify with the microtubules during repeated cycles of microtubule assembly and disassembly. Both MAPs and Tau proteins extend from the side of the microtubules. They form cross-bridges in neurons and bind tubulin by their C-terminal region. The heterogeneity in the molecular weight of Tau proteins is due to post-translational modifications and different numbers of tandem repeats in their C-terminal domain. Tau isoforms are selectively expressed in unique subsets of neurons and regulated during development. The highly phosphorylated Tau proteins have also been detected in the neurofibrillary tangles of Alzheimer's patients. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.|
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
