Goat anti Human tau antibody recognizes the N-terminal region of human Microtubule-associated protein tau, also known as tau, Neurofibrillary tangle protein or Paired helical filament-tau. Tau is a a ~50-70 kDa heterogeneous group of proteins that are involved in microtubule assembly. In healthy brain tissue tau is localized to the axons of neurons.

Tau has been associated with some neurological disease states including Alzheimer's disease where it localizes to neurofibrillary tangles (Goedert et al. 1989).

Several isoforms of human tau can be generated by alternative splicing, Goat anti Human tau antibody is expected to recognize all isoforms with the possible exception of isoform-3 which demonstrates multiple residue changes within the region of the immunizing peptide.
