  1. This is an interesting paper. However, 3R-tau, which has only one cysteine, is not mentioned at all, and in AD, both 4R and 3R tau form aggregates. It might be interesting in subsequent studies to include a 3R truncated form similar to the K18 construct. I would also be interested to see whether full-length 4R tau behaves similarly to the K18 truncated form.
