Microtubule-associated protein tau, isoform CRA_f, Neurofibrillary tangle protein, Paired helical filament-tau, PHF-tau, MAPT, MAPTL, MTBT1, TAU, MSTD, PPND, DDPAC, MTBT2, FTDP-17, FLJ31424, MGC138549.
Microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT or Tau) is a protein that stabilizes microtubules. MAPT is abundant in neurons in the central nervous system and is less common elsewhere. When MAPT is defective, and no longer stabilizes microtubules properly, it can result in dementias, such as Alzheimer's disease.
MAPT Human Recombinant (Isoform 5) fused with a 20 amino acid His tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 432 amino acids (1-412 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 45.1kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear higher). The MAPT is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The MAPT solution (0.5 mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0) and 20% glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 80.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
