Heterogeneity of Tau proteins during mouse brain development and differentiation of cultured neurons.


Tau microtubule-associated proteins constitute a group of developmentally regulated neuronal proteins. Using the high-resolution two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis system, we have resolved more than 60 distinct Tau isoforms in the adult mouse brain. Tau protein heterogeneity increases drastically during the second week of brain development… (More)
