MAPT Human Recombinant fused with a 20 amino acid His tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 403 amino acids (1-383 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 42.1kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear higher). The MAPT is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT or Tau) is a protein that stabilizes microtubules. MAPT is abundant in neurons in the central nervous system and is less common elsewhere. When MAPT is defective, and no longer stabilizes microtubules properly, it can result in dementias, such as Alzheimer's disease.
