  • The microtubule-associated protein tau is the primary component of the intracellular filamentous deposits found in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brain and also in a family of neurodegenerative diseases called 'tauopathies', where tau pathology is the primary, defining characteristic with little or no amyloid-beta (Abeta) pathology. It has been demonstrated that tau modifications such as hyperphosphorylation and truncation might be important events in the process leading to tau intracellular… CONTINUE READING
