Phospho-LC3C(S12) Antibody

Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody

  • DB - Phospho-LC3C(S12)  Antibody ABV11462
    Dot blot analysis of Phospho-LC3 (APG8a) - S12 Antibody and Nonphospho-LC3 (APG8a) Antibody on nitrocellulose membrane. 50ng of Phospho-peptide or Non Phospho-peptide per dot were adsorbed. Antibody working concentrations are 0.5 μg per ml.
  • WB - Phospho-LC3C(S12)  Antibody ABV11462
    Immunoblots of phosphorylated LC3 (phospho-LC3) in CHO cell culture. LC3 and LC3 S12A mutant vectors were transfected into CHO cells. The cell lysates were separated with SDS-PAGE and blotted with anti-phospho-LC3 S12 antibody. LC3 = microtubule-associated protein light chain-3; S12A = replacement of the amino acid position 12 serine of LC3 with alanine. WT = wildtype LC3-transfected cell lysates; S12A = LC3 S12A mutant-transfected cell lysates; Empty vector = vector with no LC3 gene. Molecular size: LC3-I = 16kDa, and LC3-II = 14 kDa
  • WB - Phospho-LC3C(S12)  Antibody ABV11462
    Immunoblots of SH-SY5Y cells treated with rapamycin for 1 h was probed with LC3 antibody. The data shows that treatment with rapamycin showed no significant change in level of LC3.
  • WB - Phospho-LC3C(S12)  Antibody ABV11462
    Immunoblots of SH-SY5Y cells treated with MPP+ for 24h was probed with LC3 antibody. The data shows that treatment with MPP+ showed no significant change in level of LC3.

Protein Information
Synonyms MAP1ALC3
Function Ubiquitin-like modifier involved in formation of autophagosomal vacuoles (autophagosomes). Plays a role in mitophagy which contributes to regulate mitochondrial quantity and quality by eliminating the mitochondria to a basal level to fulfill cellular energy requirements and preventing excess ROS production. Whereas LC3s are involved in elongation of the phagophore membrane, the GABARAP/GATE-16 subfamily is essential for a later stage in autophagosome maturation. Promotes primary ciliogenesis by removing OFD1 from centriolar satellites via the autophagic pathway.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Endomembrane system; Lipid-anchor. Cytoplasmic vesicle, autophagosome membrane; Lipid-anchor. Note=LC3-II binds to the autophagic membranes Localizes also to discrete punctae along the ciliary axoneme (By similarity).
Tissue Location Most abundant in heart, brain, skeletal muscle and testis. Little expression observed in liver

Autophagy is an alternative process of proteasomal degradation for some long-lived proteins or organelles. Alterations in the autophagic-lysosomal compartment have been linked to neuronal death in many neurodegenerative disorders as well as in transmissible neuronal pathologies (prion diseases). Genetic studies in yeast have shown that Autophagy-defective Gene-8 (Atg-8) represents a specific marker for autophagy. Among the four families of mammalian Atg8-related proteins only LC3 (Microtubule-associated Protein1 Light Chain 3) is expressed at sufficient high levels and efficiently recruited to autophagic vesicles in cells and tissues. During autophagy the cytoplasmic form, LC3-I is processed and recruited to autophagosomes, where LC3-II is generated by site specific proteolysis near to the C-terminus. Autophagic vacuoles have been also reported frequently in cardiomyopathies or muscle cells exposed to different experimental settings.
