  1. The discovery of a new gene in the tau gene locus is clearly of interest. Given that the expression patterns of tau and STH are similar to that of tau, it will be of interest to determine whether it is also involved in the regulation of microtubule formation. It is difficult to extrapolate based on little information, but the small size might be consistent with a chaperone or other accessory protein.
