Gene: MAPT (microtubule associated protein tau) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MAPT
Name: microtubule associated protein tau
Description: Exhibits several functions, including Hsp90 protein binding activity; SH3 domain binding activity; and chaperone binding activity. Involved in several processes, including protein-containing complex assembly; regulation of cellular protein localization; and regulation of cellular response to stress. Localizes to several cellular components, including axon; cytoskeleton; and nuclear lumen. Colocalizes with membrane. Implicated in dementia (multiple); neurodegenerative disease (multiple); progressive supranuclear palsy; and temporal lobe epilepsy. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease; breast cancer; and tauopathy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
