    Tau and spectraplakins promote synapse formation and maintenance through Jun kinase and neuronal trafficking

    Andre Voelzmann et al.
    A novel regulatory cascade downstream of Tau and spectraplakins ensures that synaptic proteins are delivered to axonal terminals in the developing and ageing brain, providing potential explanations for precocious synapse loss in dementias.

    Heparin-induced tau filaments are polymorphic and differ from those in Alzheimer’s and Pick’s diseases

    Wenjuan Zhang et al.
    Cryo-EM structures of heparin-induced tau filaments differ from those observed in neurodegenerative disease, illustrating their structural versatility, and prompting questions about the relevance of in vitro amyloid models.

    Narrow equilibrium window for complex coacervation of tau and RNA under cellular conditions

    Yanxian Lin et al.
    Liquid-liquid phase separation of tau is demonstrated to be an equilibrium state, stable only within a narrow range near physiological conditions, and thus has the capacity to regulate biological processes.

    Alzheimer’s disease risk gene BIN1 induces Tau-dependent network hyperexcitability

    Yuliya Voskobiynyk et al.
    BIN1 forms a complex with Tau and voltage-gated calcium channels in neurons, and higher BIN1 levels promote neuronal activity, calcium influx, and bursting that is blocked by reducing Tau.

    Structure-based inhibitors of amyloid beta core suggest a common interface with tau

    Sarah L Griner et al.
    Aβ inhibitors effectively block its aggregation, while also reducing seeding of tau aggregation from Aβ, tau, and AD derived fibrils, suggesting the two share a structurally related disease relevant interface.

    Cortical tau deposition follows patterns of entorhinal functional connectivity in aging

    Jenna N Adams et al.
    Tau deposition in the aging brain follows patterns of functional connectivity that correspond to specific neural memory networks, and this relationship is strengthened in the presence of amyloid-β.

    Targeted degradation of aberrant tau in frontotemporal dementia patient-derived neuronal cell models

    M Catarina Silva et al.
    A new Cereblon-recruiting bifunctional tau ligand, QC-01-175, promotes aberrant tau degradation and rescue of stress vulnerability in human neuronal cell models of tauopathy.

    Axon-dependent expression of YAP/TAZ mediates Schwann cell remyelination but not proliferation after nerve injury

    Matthew Grove et al.
    YAP and TAZ, potent concoproteins and therapeutic targets in cancer therapy, are essential for Schwann cells to support peripheral nerve regeneration.

    Inert and seed-competent tau monomers suggest structural origins of aggregation

    Hilda Mirbaha et al.
    Tau protein exists as two conformational ensembles, one inert, and another that has intrinsic properties of self-association, triggers seeding in cells and in vitro, and is associated with Alzheimer's disease.

    LTP and memory impairment caused by extracellular Aβ and Tau oligomers is APP-dependent

    Daniela Puzzo et al.
    Oligomeric Amyloid-β and Tau, two proteins involved in Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis, require Amyloid Precursor Protein to enter neurons and exert their detrimental effect on synaptic plasticity and memory.
