Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.

Applications Key: W=Western Blotting,

Specificity / Sensitivity

Phospho-Tau (Ser199) Antibody

recognizes endogenous levels of Tau protein only when phosphorylated at Ser199. This antibody also detects a 110 kDa band of unknown origin.

Source / Purification

Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser199 of human Tau protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.

Western Blotting

Western Blotting

Western blot analysis of extracts from mouse and rat brain using Phospho-Tau (Ser199) Antibody. The phospho-specificity of Phospho-Tau (Ser199) Antibody was verified by peptide blocking using a phosphopeptide or non-phosphopeptide targeting residue Ser199.


Tau is a heterogeneous microtubule-associated protein that promotes and stabilizes microtubule assembly, especially in axons. Six isoforms with different amino-terminal inserts and different numbers of tandem repeats near the carboxy terminus have been identified, and tau is hyperphosphorylated at approximately 25 sites by Erk, GSK-3, and CDK5 (1,2). Phosphorylation decreases the ability of tau to bind to microtubules. Neurofibrillary tangles are a major hallmark of Alzheimer's disease; these tangles are bundles of paired helical filaments composed of hyperphosphorylated tau. In particular, phosphorylation at Ser396 by GSK-3 or CDK5 destabilizes microtubules. Furthermore, research studies have shown that inclusions of tau are found in a number of other neurodegenerative diseases, collectively known as tauopathies (1,3).

Ser199 of Tau is phosphorylated by various kinases such as GSK-3β, AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), and dual specificity tyrosine-phosphorylation-regulated kinase 1A (Dyrk1A) (4-7). Phosphorylation of Ser199 of Tau is an early event in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (8,9).
