Background of Tau

MAPT, Microtubule-associated protein tau, appears to be enriched in axons. The MAPT gene is assigned to chromosome 17 by hybridization of a cDNA clone to flow-sorted and spot-blotted chromosomes and to 17q21 by in situ hybridization, containing 16 exons. The tau proteins are the product of alternative splicingfrom a single gene that in humans is designated MAPT. Tau proteins are proteins that stabilize microtubules. They are abundant in neurons in the central nervous system and are less common elsewhere. When tau proteins are defective, and no longer stabilize microtubules properly, they can result in dementias such as Alzheimer's disease.

Antibody Validation

Boster validates all antibodies on WB, IHC, ICC, Immunofluorescence and ELISA with known positive and negative samples to ensure specificity and high affinity.

4 Customer Q&As for Anti-Tau/MAPT Antibody


We are currently using anti-Tau/MAPT antibody PA1482 for mouse tissue, and we are happy with the WB results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human, mouse, rat. Is it possible that the antibody can work on primate tissues as well?

The anti-Tau/MAPT antibody (PA1482) has not been tested for cross reactivity specifically with primate tissues, though there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in primate you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.

We were well pleased with the WB result of your anti-Tau/MAPT antibody. However we have been able to see positive staining in cervix carcinoma erythroleukemia cytosol using this antibody. Is that expected? Could you tell me where is MAPT supposed to be expressed?
