Summaries for MAPT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAPT Gene

  • This gene encodes the microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT) whose transcript undergoes complex, regulated alternative splicing, giving rise to several mRNA species. MAPT transcripts are differentially expressed in the nervous system, depending on stage of neuronal maturation and neuron type. MAPT gene mutations have been associated with several neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, Pick's disease, frontotemporal dementia, cortico-basal degeneration and progressive supranuclear palsy. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MAPT Gene

MAPT (Microtubule Associated Protein Tau) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAPT include dementia, frontotemporal and pick disease. Among its related pathways are Alzheimers Disease Pathway and Integrated Pancreatic Cancer Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and microtubule binding. An important paralog of this gene is MAP4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAPT Gene

  • Promotes microtubule assembly and stability, and might be involved in the establishment and maintenance of neuronal polarity. The C-terminus binds axonal microtubules while the N-terminus binds neural plasma membrane components, suggesting that tau functions as a linker protein between both. Axonal polarity is predetermined by TAU/MAPT localization (in the neuronal cell) in the domain of the cell body defined by the centrosome. The short isoforms allow plasticity of the cytoskeleton whereas the longer isoforms may preferentially play a role in its stabilization.

Post-translational modifications for MAPT Gene

  • Glycation of PHF-tau, but not normal brain TAU/MAPT. Glycation is a non-enzymatic post-translational modification that involves a covalent linkage between a sugar and an amino group of a protein molecule forming ketoamine. Subsequent oxidation, fragmentation and/or cross-linking of ketoamine leads to the production of advanced glycation endproducts (AGES). Glycation may play a role in stabilizing PHF aggregation leading to tangle formation in AD.
  • O-glycosylated. O-GlcNAcylation content is around 8.2%. There is reciprocal down-regulation of phosphorylation and O-GlcNAcylation. Phosphorylation on Ser-717 completely abolishes the O-GlcNAcylation on this site, while phosphorylation on Ser-713 and Ser-721 reduces O-GlcNAcylation by a factor of 2 and 4 respectively. O-GlcNAcylation on Ser-717 decreases the phosphorylation on Ser-721 by about 41.5%.
  • Phosphorylation at serine and threonine residues in S-P or T-P motifs by proline-directed protein kinases (PDPK1: CDK1, CDK5, GSK3, MAPK) (only 2-3 sites per protein in interphase, seven-fold increase in mitosis, and in the form associated with paired helical filaments (PHF-tau)), and at serine residues in K-X-G-S motifs by MAP/microtubule affinity-regulating kinase (MARK1 or MARK2), causing detachment from microtubules, and their disassembly. Phosphorylation decreases with age. Phosphorylation within tau/MAPs repeat domain or in flanking regions seems to reduce tau/MAPs interaction with, respectively, microtubules or plasma membrane components. Phosphorylation on Ser-610, Ser-622, Ser-641 and Ser-673 in several isoforms during mitosis. Phosphorylation at Ser-548 by GSK3B reduces ability to bind and stabilize microtubules. Phosphorylation at Ser-579 by BRSK1 and BRSK2 in neurons affects ability to bind microtubules and plays a role in neuron polarization. Phosphorylated at Ser-554, Ser-579, Ser-602, Ser-606 and Ser-669 by PHK. Phosphorylation at Ser-214 by SGK1 mediates microtubule depolymerization and neurite formation in hippocampal neurons. There is a reciprocal down-regulation of phosphorylation and O-GlcNAcylation. Phosphorylation on Ser-717 completely abolishes the O-GlcNAcylation on this site, while phosphorylation on Ser-713 and Ser-721 reduces glycosylation by a factor of 2 and 4 respectively. Phosphorylation on Ser-721 is reduced by about 41.5% by GlcNAcylation on Ser-717. Dephosphorylated at several serine and threonine residues by the serine/threonine phosphatase PPP5C.
  • Polyubiquitinated. Requires functional TRAF6 and may provoke SQSTM1-dependent degradation by the proteasome (By similarity). PHF-tau can be modified by three different forms of polyubiquitination. Lys-48-linked polyubiquitination is the major form, Lys-6-linked and Lys-11-linked polyubiquitination also occur.
  • Glycosylation at Lys 87, Lys 383, Lys 467, Lys 480, Lys 491, Ser 525, Lys 542, Lys 551, Ser 555, Lys 576, Lys 597, Lys 598, Lys 664, Lys 670, Lys 686, and Ser 717

  • Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) [MIM:600274]: A form of dementia characterized by pathologic finding of frontotemporal lobar degeneration, presenile dementia with behavioral changes, deterioration of cognitive capacities and loss of memory. In some cases, parkinsonian symptoms are prominent. Neuropathological changes include frontotemporal atrophy often associated with atrophy of the basal ganglia, substantia nigra, amygdala. In most cases, protein tau deposits are found in glial cells and/or neurons. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10208578, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10214944, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10489057, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10553987, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10802785, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11071507, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11117541, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11585254, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11889249, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11921059, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12473774, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12509859, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14517953, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15883319, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16240366, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26086902, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9629852, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9641683, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9736786, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9789048, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9973279}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Defects in MAPT are a cause of corticobasal degeneration (CBD). It is marked by extrapyramidal signs and apraxia and can be associated with memory loss. Neuropathologic features may overlap Alzheimer disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, and Parkinson disease.
  • Note=In Alzheimer disease, the neuronal cytoskeleton in the brain is progressively disrupted and replaced by tangles of paired helical filaments (PHF) and straight filaments, mainly composed of hyperphosphorylated forms of TAU (PHF-TAU or AD P-TAU). O-GlcNAcylation is greatly reduced in Alzheimer disease brain cerebral cortex leading to an increase in TAU/MAPT phosphorylations. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:14517953, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26086902}.
  • Parkinson-dementia syndrome (PARDE) [MIM:260540]: A syndrome characterized by parkinsonism, tremor, rigidity, dementia, ophthalmoparesis and pyramidal signs. Neurofibrillary degeneration occurs in the hippocampus, basal ganglia and brainstem nuclei. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Pick disease of the brain (PIDB) [MIM:172700]: A rare form of dementia pathologically defined by severe atrophy, neuronal loss and gliosis. It is characterized by the occurrence of tau-positive inclusions, swollen neurons (Pick cells) and argentophilic neuronal inclusions known as Pick bodies that disproportionally affect the frontal and temporal cortical regions. Clinical features include aphasia, apraxia, confusion, anomia, memory loss and personality deterioration. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10604746, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11089577, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11117542, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11601501, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11891833}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Progressive supranuclear palsy 1 (PSNP1) [MIM:601104]: Characterized by akinetic-rigid syndrome, supranuclear gaze palsy, pyramidal tract dysfunction, pseudobulbar signs and cognitive capacities deterioration. Neurofibrillary tangles and gliosis but no amyloid plaques are found in diseased brains. Most cases appear to be sporadic, with a significant association with a common haplotype including the MAPT gene and the flanking regions. Familial cases show an autosomal dominant pattern of transmission with incomplete penetrance; genetic analysis of a few cases showed the occurrence of tau mutations, including a deletion of Asn-613. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10534245, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11220749, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12325083, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14991828, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14991829, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16157753}.
