Domain Architecture (Details)
InterPro domains unassigned to SynO:
Microtubules consist of tubulins as well as a group of additional proteinscollectively known as the Microtubule Associated Proteins (MAP). MAPs havebeen classified into two classes: high molecular weight MAPs and Tauprotein. The Tau proteins promote microtubule assembly and stabilizemicrotubules.The C-terminal region of these proteins contains three or four tandem repeatsof a conserved domain of about thirty amino acid residues which is implicatedin tubulin-binding and which seems to have a stiffening effect on microtubules.
  IPR001084:Tubulin-binding Tau protein
Tau proteins are microtubule-associated proteins that are involved inmicrotubule assembly and stabilisation. They may also play a wider role in cellular shape.otility and signal transduction . Tau mRNA is expressed predominantlyin neurones.nd particularly in their axons. Quite a number of isoformshave been detected.hich in human brain have been shown to arise fromalternative splicing of an mRNA from a single gene located on chromosome 17.The isoforms contain 352-441 amino acid residues. A larger tau isoform hasalso been detected.hich is expressed principally in the peripheral nervoussystem . Each isoform contains a variable number of C-terminal repeatregions that are thought to be responsible for tubulin-binding. The acidic N-terminal region projects from the micro-tubule surface when Tau is bound and may interact with other cytoskeletal elements. The middle region is proline-rich and may be a further binding site. It contains the target sites of many kinases.hosphorylation of this region may result in a change in the conformational state of the protein.nd affect its ability to bind microtubules . Tau does not appear to be an essential protein.ince transgenic micelacking tau appear to develop a normal nervous system with only mildalterations in the structure of certain small-calibre axons . However.t has received much recent attention due to its possible role in theaetiogenesis of a number of human neurodegenerative diseases.ilamentousinclusions containing tau having been found in the brains of patientsdiagnosed with Alzheimers disease.icks disease and progressivesupranuclear palsy. gene mutations have been found inpatients suffering familial frontotemporal dementia.hich result inabnormal tau protein aggregates forming in the brain tissue .
