Tau in Human Alzheimer's Disease Brain. Tau was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human Alzheimer's disease brain (cortex) using 5 µg/mL Goat Anti-Tau Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3494) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: Tau

Tau is a microtubule-associated protein primarily expressed in neurons. It can associate with microtubules through the carboxy-terminal domains and with the plasma membrane through the amino-terminal projection domain. Tau has a role as a stabilizer of microtubules. Abnormal Tau phosphorylation or splicing is associated with various neurological disorders.
