Stability :Store at 4oC (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20oC for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.

Sample Data :Western blot analysis of extracts mouse brain using Tau antibody (lanes 1 and 2) and anti-phospho-Tau (Thr231) antibody (lanes 3 and 4).

Scientific Background :The Tau family of proteins interacts directly with microtubules to stabilize macromolecular structures. Microtubule association is dependent on the phosphorylation state of Tau proteins (1). Hyperphosphorylated Tau proteins are implicated in Alzheimer's disease (AD) where it is a major component of the offending protein aggregates. Other components of the aggregates include misfolded proteins such as beta-amyloid precursor protein (betaAPP), ubiquitin, and various chaperones and protein kinases. Malfunctioning Tau proteins are associated with microtubule disintegration and collapse of the neuronal transport system (2).
