A68

symbol for a protein found in the brain tissue of patients with Alzheimer's disease. It is also found in the developing normal brains of fetuses and infants but begins to disappear by the age of 2 years. It is a major subunit of paired helical filaments and derivatized forms of tau protein. See also tau protein.

A68

A neuronal antigen—recognised by a monoclonal antibody Alz-50—which is present in the developing foetus by 32 weeks of development, and disappears by age 2; it is present in brain tissue and CSF, is a major subunit of paired helical filaments of Alzheimer’s disease and is derived from LMW tau protein—possibly Tau 69—but is more phosphorylated.
