New publication on Tauopathy

1 minute read comments

I’m very happy to announce that a new publication on tauopathy by Lydia Reinhardt (1st author) and Dagmar Ehrnhöfer is just published. In “Dual truncation of tau by caspase-2 accelerates its CHIP-mediated degradation” Lydia and the collaborators find:

  • Caspase-2 cleaves Tau at D65 and D421
  • In vivo overexpression leads to low steady-state protein levels for caspase-2 generated Tau fragments
  • CHIP specifically co-immunoprecipitates with Tau fragments in vivo
  • Caspase-2 generated Tau fragments are preferentially ubiquitinated by CHIP
  • CHIP is linked to accelerated degradation of caspase-2 generated Tau fragments in vitro

Our lab including me collaborated in this project.
