The role of MAPT sequence variation in mechanisms of disease susceptibility.
The microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT or tau) is of great interest in the field of neurodegeneration as there is a well-established genetic link between the MAPT gene locus and tauopathies, a diverse group of neurodegenerative dementias and movement disorders. The genomic architecture in the region spanning the MAPT locus contains a ~1.8 Mb block of linkage disequilibrium characterized by two major haplotypes: H1 and H2. Recent studies have established strong genetic association betwee...Expand abstract
