ANTIBODIES  

(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, histochemistry, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.


see below monoclonal and polyclonal to Tau and phosphorylated Tau
DATA SHEET:    Mouse anti-TAU monoclonal

The brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease are characterised by an abundance of fibrous lesions of senile plaques, neurofibrillary tangles and neuropil threads. Tangles represent dense accumulations of ultrastructurally distinct paired helical filaments whose major component is a microtubule-associated tau protein. Tau-2, raised against the bovine tau protein, cross reacts with the human phosphorylated form of tau protein enabling the conformational dependent epitope found only in the neurofibrillary components in Alzheimer's disease cases to be detected. Therefore, Tau-2, together with B-Amyloid can aid in the positive and specific identification of Alzheimer's disease in humans.
