    Microtubules and tau aggregates

    6892

    Microtubules (magenta) and tau protein (light blue) in a cell model of tauopathy. Researchers believe that tauopathy—the aggregation of tau protein—plays a role in Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. This image was captured using Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM).

    Public NoteA web of magenta fibers with light-blue spots throughout.
