Dephosphorylation of Alzheimer paired helical filaments by protein phosphatase-2A and -2B.

Abstract

Microtubule-associated protein tau is abnormally hyperphosphorylated in the brain of patients with Alzheimer disease and in this form is the major protein subunit of the paired helical filaments (PHF), the most prominent lesion of the disease. In this study the dephosphorylation of sparingly soluble PHF, PHF II-tau by brain protein phosphatase (PP)-2A1 and… (More)
