...Mohammed M. Alhadidy; Nicholas M. Kanaan Tau protein is associated with many neurodegenerative disorders known as tauopathies. Aggregates of tau are thought of as a main contributor to neurodegeneration in these diseases. Increasingly, evidence points to earlier, soluble conformations of abnormally...

The aggregation-prone LSCRs (low-sequence-complexity regions), and in particular, the polyQ/N-rich regions, have been extensively studied under pathological conditions due to their role in neurodegenerative diseases. In the present review, we discuss recent in vitro , in vivo and computational data that, globally...
