Study on interaction between microtubule associated protein tau and prion protein

【摘要】:Microtubule-associated protein tau is considered to play roles in many neurodegenera-tive diseases including some transmissible spongiform encephalopathies.To address the possible molecular linkage of prion protein(PrP) and tau,a GST-fusion segment of human tau covering the three-repeat region and various PrP segments was used in the tests of GST pull-down and immuno-precipitation.We found tau protein interacted with various style prion proteins such as native prion protein(PrPC) or protease-resistant isoform(PrPSc) .Co-localization signals of tau and PrP were found in the CHO cell tranfected with both PrP and tau gene.The domain of interaction with tau was located at N-terminal of PrP(residues 23 to 91) .The evidence of molecular interactions between PrP and tau protein highlights a potential role of tau in the biological function of PrP and the pathogenesis of TSEs.
