  • Work with LifeSpan to design a custom immunohistochemistry to address your specific biological question. Outsource the entire localization process without having to worry about finding and characterizing target specific antibodies, sourcing and validating difficult-to-find tissues, and having the ability to interpret the resulting immunostaining in relation to complex human pathologies.

  • TCR Screening Services

  • Test your therapeutic antibodies in immunohistochemistry against a broad panel of normal frozen human tissue types in order to determine potential unintended binding. Our non-GLP TCR services are designed on the FDA recommendation outlined in their "Points to Consider in the Manufacture and Testing of Monoclonal Antibody Products for Human Use".

Specificity and Use

MAPT / Tau antibody was raised against synthetic peptide MAEPRQEFEVMEDHAG corresponding to amino acids 1-16 of human Tau. ( AA 1-16 ). Percent identity by BLAST analysis: Human, Chimpanzee, Gorilla (100%); Gibbon, Monkey, Green monkey, Baboon, Dog, Horse (94%); Marmoset, Goat, Elephant, Bovine, Rabbit (88%); Mouse, Rat, Prairie vole (81%).
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 kD 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. Several isoforms of human tau can be generated by alternative splicing,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.
Immunohistology: This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin embedded sections. Sodium buffer pH6.0 is recommended for this purpose.


Serum, 0.09% sodium azide.

Tau promotes microtubule assembly and stability, and might be involved in the establishment and maintenance of neuronal polarity. The C-terminus binds axonal microtubules while the N-terminus binds neural plasma membrane components, suggesting that tau functions as a linker protein between both. Axonal polarity is predetermined by tau localization (in the neuronal cell) in the domain of the cell body defined by the centrosome.
