Neurodegenerative diseases include Parkinson’s disease, progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), Pick’s disease (PiD), and Alzheimer’s disease.
Tubulin-associated unit (tau) is a microtubule-associated protein (MAP) found mainly in neurons of the central nervous system. Tau regulates microtubule assembly and stability, as well as modulating axonal maintenance and transport and controlling neurite outgrowth.
To address this problem, tau is being investigated as a biomarker with significant potential to improve the reliability of disease diagnosis.
Alzheimer’s disease is one of progressive neurodegenerative diseases that accounts for up to 70% of dementia cases. It is characterized by short term memory loss at the early stages of the disease.
The symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are due to the widespread death of neurons in the brain.
Alzheimer’s disease research requires a great diversity of life science products to investigate new methods for diagnosis and treatment. In our portfolio, you can find research products to aid in the study of Alzheimer’s disease and neurodegeneration, including monoclonal antibodies, polyclonal antibodies, proteins and ELISA Kits.
