The trans-neuronal propagation of tau has been implicated in the progression of tau-mediated neurodegeneration. Tau secretion from neurons is the first step in tau transmission, but little is known about the cellular mechanism. Here, we report that p300/CBP, the lysine acetyltransferase that acetylates tau and regulates its homeostasis and toxicity, serves as a key regulator of tau secretion by inhibiting the autophagy-lysosomal pathway (ALP). Increased p300/CBP activity was associated with impaired function of this pathway in a tau transgenic mouse model. p300/CBP hyperactivation increased tau secretion by blocking autophagic flux. Conversely, inhibiting p300/CBP genetically or pharmacologically promoted autophagic flux, and reduced tau accumulation, tau secretion, and tau propagation in fibril-induced tau spreading models in vitro and in vivo. Our findings show that p300/CBP-induced impairment in the ALP underlies excessive unconventional secretion and pathogenic spread of tau.
