ATG12 Antibody

Purified Mouse Monoclonal Antibody (Mab)

  • WB - ATG12 Antibody AM1816a
    Western blot analysis of anti-APG12 Monoclonal Antibody (Cat.#AM1816a) by APG12 recombinant protein. APG12(arrow) was detected using the purified Mab.
  • IHC-P - ATG12 Antibody AM1816a
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human hepatocarcinoma tissue and lung carcinoma tissue reacted with APG12L Monoclonal Antibody (Cat.#AM1816a), which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • IHC-P - ATG12 Antibody AM1816a
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human lung carcinoma tissue reacted with APG12L Monoclonal Antibody (Cat.#AM1816a), which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • IF - ATG12 Antibody AM1816a
    Atg12 antibody tested in HEK cells. Fixed in PFA permeablilized with 0.2% Saponin. Blocked and antibodies in 10% goat serum. Secondary was mouse 555. The right is in full medium (FM) and the left with EBSS (no leupeptin)(Provided by Nicole McKnight & Sharon Tooze).

Protein Information
Name ATG12
Synonyms APG12, APG12L
Function Ubiquitin-like protein involved in autophagy vesicles formation. Conjugation with ATG5 through a ubiquitin-like conjugating system involving also ATG7 as an E1-like activating enzyme and ATG10 as an E2-like conjugating enzyme, is essential for its function. The ATG12-ATG5 conjugate acts as an E3-like enzyme which is required for lipidation of ATG8 family proteins and their association to the vesicle membranes. The ATG12-ATG5 conjugate also regulates negatively the innate antiviral immune response by blocking the type I IFN production pathway through direct association with RARRES3 and MAVS. Plays also a role in translation or delivery of incoming viral RNA to the translation apparatus.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Preautophagosomal structure membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Note=TECPR1 recruits the ATG12-ATG5 conjugate to the autolysosomal membrane
Tissue Location Ubiquitous..

Autophagy is a process of bulk protein degradation in which cytoplasmic components, including organelles, are enclosed in double-membrane structures called autophagosomes and delivered to lysosomes or vacuoles for degradation. ATG12 is the human homolog of a yeast protein involved in autophagy (Mizushima et al., 1998 [PubMed 9852036]).
