43D_Biotin_Tau_1-100_Antibody_1_112717
Western blot of Biotin anti-Tau, 1-100 antibody (clone 43D). Lane 1: Molecular weight marker; Lane 2: 20 µg of human brain lysate; Lane 3: 20 µg of human Alzheimer’s disease brain lysate. The blot was incubated with 5.0 µg/mL of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C, followed by incubation with HRP Streptavidin (Cat. No. 405210) for 60 minutes at room temperature. Enhanced chemiluminescence was used as the detection system.

    IHC staining of Biotin anti-Tau, 1-100 antibody (clone 43D) on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded normal (left) and Alzhiemer’s disease (right) brain tissue. Tissues were incubated with 1µg/mL of the conjugated antibody for 20 minutes at room temperature. For detection, the HRP labeling reagent and DAB from BioLegend Ultra Streptavidin (USA) HRP Detection Kit was used (Multi-Species, component #5, DAB; Cat. No. 929901). The tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and bluing solution. The images were captured using a 40X objective.

Description

Tau protein promotes microtubule assembly and stability. Tau is abundant in neurons of the central nervous system, and is expressed at low levels in astrocytes and oligodendrocytes. Abnormal hyper-phosphorylation, aggregation, and toxic gain of function of tau is associated with several neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The major building block of neurofibrillary lesions in AD brains consists of paired helical filaments (PHFs) of abnormally hyperphosphorylated tau. Six isoforms of tau are generated by alternative splicing of the MAPT gene. These isoforms are distinguished by the number of tubulin binding domains, 3 (3R) or 4 (4R), in the C-terminal of the protein and by one (1N), two (2N), or no (0N) inserts in the N-terminal domain. Tau isoforms are differentially expressed during development.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.5 - 1.0 µg per ml. For immunohistochemistry, a concentration range of 1.0 - 5.0 µg/ml is suggested. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

This antibody is reactive to amino acid residues 1-100 of human Tau. The epitope lies within amino acids 6-18. This clone is specific for all six isoforms of human tau protein.

This antibody clone has been reported for use on IHC of 4% PFA-fixed free floating sections5.

This antibody is exclusively provided by BioLegend.

Antigen Details

Structure
Unmodified Tau isoforms have an apparent molecular weight ranging from 33-79 kD. Additional high and low molecular weight Tau species have been observed in brain tissues.
Distribution

Tissue distribution: Central nervous system, peripheral ganglia and nerves, kidney, skeletal, and heart muscle.
Cellular distribution: cytoskeleton, nucleus, plasma membrane and cytosol.

Function
Tau promotes microtubule assembly and stability. The short tau isoforms allow plasticity of the cytoskeleton whereas the longer isoforms may preferentially play a role in its stabilization.
Interaction
Tau interacts with Sequestosome-1, Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase FKBP4, Casein kinase I isoform delta, Serine/threonine-protein kinase Sgk1, Laforin, Alpha-synuclein
