Human brain encompasses six tau isoforms, containing either three (3R) or four (4R) repeat domains, all of which participate in the pathogenesis of human tauopathies. To investigate the role of tau protein in the disease, transgenic rat models have been created. However, unlike humans, it has been suggested that rat brain expresses only three 4R tau(More)
Interaction of a single-chain antibody fragment (scFv) with its cognate antigen while still attached to the ribosome was studied by fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS). In experiments with purified scFv, FCS was capable of resolving the difference in diffusion time between free and antibody-bound labelled antigen. Ribosome-displayed antibody(More)
Accumulation of misfolded forms of microtubule associated, neuronal protein tau causes neurofibrillary degeneration typical of Alzheimer's disease and other tauopathies. This process is accompanied by elevated cellular stress and concomitant deregulation of heat-shock proteins. We used a transgenic rat model of tauopathy to study involvement of heat shock(More)
