TAU and Interaction Partners v1.2.5

TAU Interactions Section of NESTOR



We found that FKBP51 indeed could interact with tau from both AD patients and control cases (Fig. 3D), further suggesting a functionally relevant relationship between FKBP51 and tau. We then investigated whether FKBP51 would preferentially interact with phosphorylated tau species. We increased the number of samples per group (4 for AD and 4 for normal) and again co-immunoprecipitated FKBP51. After gel electrophoresis, immunoblotting showed increased association of pS396 and pS199-S202 tau species with FKBP51 in AD tissue (Fig S1). Indeed, we found that FKBP51 over-expression increased phospho- and total tau levels (by 80%) in HeLa cells stably expressing normal human tau, while FKBP52 over-expression had no affect (Fig.4A). These experiments were repeated multiple times and Student t-test of these replicates demonstrated that FKBP51 significantly increased total tau levels (p= 0.0104).
