The natural antisense transcript MAPT-AS1 interferes with translation of mRNA transcript into tau protein in the brain and may represent a general mechanism for controlling levels of intrinsically disordered proteins, with particular relevance for neurodegeneration.MIR-NATs repress <i>MAPT</i> translation and aid proteostasis in neurodegeneration
