Oligomeric Amyloid ß1-42 (Aß) plays a crucial synaptotoxic role in Alzheimer's disease, and hyperphosphorylated tau facilitates Aß toxicity. The link between Aß and tau, however, remains controversial. In this study, we find that in hippocampal neurons, Aß acutely induces tubulin posttranslational modifications (PTMs) and stabilizes dynamic microtubules (MTs) by reducing their catastrophe frequency. Silencing or acute inhibition of the formin mDia1 suppresses these activities and corrects the synaptotoxicity and deficits of axonal transport induced by Aß. We explored the mechanism of rescue and found that stabilization of dynamic MTs promotes tau-dependent loss of dendritic spines and tau hyperphosphorylation. Collectively, these results uncover a novel role for mDia1 in Aß-mediated synaptotoxicity and demonstrate that inhibition of MT dynamics and accumulation of PTMs are driving factors for the induction of tau-mediated neuronal damage.
