Peptide derived from microtubule binding repeat of Tau protein. Self-assembles into 30-55 nm paired helical filaments (PHFs) even in the absense of inducers. Cytotoxic in multiple cell lines including cortical neurons, cerebellar granular neurons, neuroblastoma cells, kidney fibroblasts and HEK293 cells. Co-localizes with pathological hyperphosphorylated forms of tau in vitro. Cell permeable.
(Modifications: Val-1 = N-terminal Ac, Val-1 = D-Val, Gln-2 = D-Gln, Ile-3 = D-Ile, Val-4 = D-Val, Tyr-5 = D-Tyr, Lys-6 = D-Lys, Arg-15 = C-terminal amide)
