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).

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
