Purified Mouse Anti-Rat Tau
Western blot analysis of Tau. A rat cortex lysate was probed with the mouse anti-rat Tau antibody at concentrations of 3.0 µg/mL (lane 1), 1.0 µg/mL (lane 2), and 0.5 µg/mL (lane 3). Tau is identified as bands between ~ 50-70 kDa.

Immunohistochemical staining of Tau.  A rat brain section was formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded for staining with the mouse anti-rat Tau antibody. Investigators are encouraged to titrate between 10 µg/mL to 0.032 µg/mL.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  3. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.

TAU-5

Tau proteins are microtuble-associated proteins (MAPs) that are thought to function by stabilizing microtubles. They comprise a family of multiple polypeptides that originate from one gene. Alternate splicing of Tau mRNA and differential phosphorylation contribute to the heterogeneity of Tau. Typically, Tau proteins migrate between ~ 45-70 kDa with isoelectric points ranging from 6.5-8.0. Tau expression is widespread in the brain and is found in most cell types within the mammalian central nervous system. Tau has a complex biochemical nature that is partly due to its many isoforms. The number and molecular weights of Tau forms changes during brain development. Additionally, the molecular wieghts and forms of Tau proteins at a given point of development vary between species. Antibodies directed against different epitopes have been used to distinguish between Tau forms. The monoclonal antibody TAU-5 recognizes a phosphorylation-independent epitope on Tau proteins. The reduced molecular weight of Tau proteins may range between 45 kDa to 95 kDa. The TAU-5 antibody reacts with a phosphorylation-independent epitope in the middle of tau. It recognizes both the phosphorylated and non-phosphorylated form of Tau. The antibody has been characterized in rat tissue.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
