Microtubule-associated protein tau is localized to the axon in situ and has been implicated in the development of neuronal polarity. Here we report that tau is extracted differentially in cultured hippocampal neurons yielding an axon-specific localization under conditions that keep the integrity of the plasma membrane. The amount of bound tau increases(More)
To determine the effect of neurotrophins on the survival and morphological differentiation of CNS neurons, we examined NT2-N cells, which provide a unique culture model for terminally differentiated and polar human neurons. Here we report the development of conditions for the long-term culture of NT2-N cells in low density and in chemically defined medium.(More)
