Abstract Intracisternal administration of aluminum maltolate to rabbits produces a marked argyrophilic neurofibrillary degeneration (NFD) which is also immunoreactive for both phosphorylated and non-phosphorylated microtubule associated protein tau. Using tissue fixation in PBF, the monoclonal antibodies Tau-2 and AT8 stain the NFD. Dephosphorylation markedly reduces the positivity of AT8. Using PLP-fixed tissue, monoclonal antibody Tau-1 also immunostains aluminum-induced NFD.
