  • Scientific Background: Brain-specific tau isoforms vary in the number of N-terminal inserts and C- terminal repeat domains due to alternative splicing of exons; the 2N4R isoform of tau is expressed in adult brain yet is absent from the fetal brain (1). Tau and alpha-synuclein polymerize into amyloid fibrils to form filamentous inclusions in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Tau has been shown to interact with alpha-synuclein in vitro (2), with synergistic cross-seeding between tau and alpha-synuclein resulting in polymerization of each other into fibrillary amyloid lesions in neuronal cultures and in vivo (3,4). Recombinant tau and alpha-synuclein co-polymer fibrils have demonstrated a more widespread transmission of induced pathology in a rodent model of tauopathies compared to pure Tau or alpha-synuclein fibrils alone (5). These co-polymer fibrils have also shown enhanced alpha-synuclein aggregation in vitro, and more severe alpha-synuclein pathology and Parkinson’s disease-like symptoms in mice (6).
