Title
(EN) Use of phosphorylated tau and p38gamma to treat a neurological condition
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a method of treating or preventing a neurological condition mediated by a tau-dependent signalling complex in neurons of a subject, comprising treating the subject to: (a) promote phosphorylation of one or more amino acid residues of tau, wherein the phosphorylation of the amino acid residues causes disruption of the tau-dependent signalling complex in neurons of the subject; or (b)introduce a variant of tau that causes disruption of the tau-dependent signalling complex in neurons of the subject. The invention also relates to vectors, compositions and kits for treating or preventing a neurological condition mediated by a tau-dependent signalling complex in neurons of a subject.
