Tau-Tally Microtubular! New Model Sheds Light on Neurological Diseases

Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley researchers have combined cryo-electron microscopy with computational modeling to produce a near-atomic-resolution model of the interaction between microtubules and associated proteins called tau. The model provides insight into how tau stabilizes microtubules, and what makes it dissociate to form tau aggregates in some neurological diseases, including Alzheimer’s. More>
