Abstract

Pick's disease (PiD) is characterized by the deposition of tau protein as three-repeat tau Pick bodies, whereas progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) involves the deposition of four-repeat tau neurofibrillary tangles. PSP is associated with the tau HI haplotype. The authors investigated a possible association between PiD and the tau H1 or H2 haplotype. There was no difference between the tau H2 haplotype or H2H2 genotype frequency in PiD cases and control subjects. No tau mutations were identified in pathologically typical cases of PiD, with antibody 12-E8-negative Pick bodies.
