Abstract

Tau is the major neuronal protein involved in the stabilization of microtubule assembly. In Alzheimer's disease, Tau self assembles to form intracellular protein aggregates which are toxic to cells. Various methods have been tried and tested to restrain the aggregation of Tau. Most of t...read more
