|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Calculated MW||14272 Da|
|Dilution||IF (20 µg/ml), IHC-P (10 µg/ml), WB (1 - 2 µg/ml),|
|Other Names||MAP1LC3A, ATG8E, LC3, LC3A, MAP1BLC3, MAP1A/1B light chain 3 A, MAP1A/MAP1B LC3 A, MAP1A/MAP1B light chain 3 A, MAP1ALC3|
|Target/Specificity||MAP1LC3A antibody is human specific. At least two isoforms of MAP1LC3A are known to exist. MAP1LC3A antibody is predicted to not cross-react with MAP1LC3B or MAP1LC3C.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||PBS, 0.02% sodium azide. Long term: -20°C; Short term: +4°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||MAP1LC3A / LC3A Antibody (N-Terminus) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Ubiquitin-like modifier involved in formation of autophagosomal vacuoles (autophagosomes) (PubMed:20713600, PubMed:24290141). Whereas LC3s are involved in elongation of the phagophore membrane, the GABARAP/GATE-16 subfamily is essential for a later stage in autophagosome maturation (PubMed:20713600).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Endomembrane system; Lipid-anchor. Cytoplasmic vesicle, autophagosome membrane; Lipid-anchor. Cytoplasmic vesicle, autophagosome Note=LC3-II binds to the autophagic membranes|
|Tissue Location||Most abundant in heart, brain, liver, skeletal muscle and testis but absent in thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes.|
