It has been observed that the concentration of Tau is very high in CSF of patients with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD) as it is released in CSF due to neuron is destroyed while it is rarely detected in CSF of healthy subjects.

About Tau
Tau protein is a 45-50kDa microtubule-associated protein which consists of 352-441 amino acids.  It has a role of stabilizing microtubules that transport intracellular substances in nerve cells. It has been known that tauopathy such as Alzheimer type dementia and frontotemporal lobar degeneration is developed due to abnormal accumulation of Tau. The main element of neurofibrillary tangle is called PHF (paired helical filament) and it is accumulated in nerve cells. Overexpressed phosphorylated tau is aggregated and it becomes a main cause of PHF. 

Comprehensive Alzheimer's disease related products (ELISA / Antibody) are available.
