LC3 Antibody (APG8C) (N-term)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - LC3 Antibody (APG8C) (N-term) AP1804a
    Western blot analysis of lysates from 293, T47D cell line (from left to right), using APG8c (MAP1LC3C) Antibody (M1)(Cat. #AP1804a). AP1804a was diluted at 1:1000 at each lane. A goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L(HRP) at 1:5000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Lysates at 35ug per lane.
  • WB - LC3 Antibody (APG8C) (N-term) AP1804a
    The anti-LC3 (APG8c) Pab (Cat. #AP1804a) is used in Western blot to detect LC3 (APG8c) in, from left to right, 293, Ramos, Hela, HepG2, T47d, and Jurkat tissue lysates. LC3 (APG8c)(arrow) was detected using the purified Pab.
  • IHC-P - LC3 Antibody (APG8C) (N-term) AP1804a
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human cancer tissue reacted with the primary antibody, which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by AEC staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated. BC = breast carcinoma; HC = hepatocarcinoma.

PrecautionsLC3 Antibody (APG8C) (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Function Ubiquitin-like modifier that plays a crucial role in antibacterial autophagy (xenophagy) through the selective binding of CALCOCO2. Recruites all ATG8 family members to infecting bacteria such as S.Typhimurium.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Endomembrane system; Lipid-anchor. Cytoplasmic vesicle, autophagosome membrane; Lipid-anchor. Note=LC3-II binds to the autophagic membranes
Tissue Location Most abundant in placenta, lung and ovary.

Macroautophagy is the major inducible pathway for the general turnover of cytoplasmic constituents in eukaryotic cells, it is also responsible for the degradation of active cytoplasmic enzymes and organelles during nutrient starvation. Macroautophagy involves the formation of double-membrane bound autophagosomes which enclose the cytoplasmic constituent targeted for degradation in a membrane bound structure, which then fuse with the lysosome (or vacuole) releasing a single-membrane bound autophagic bodies which are then degraded within the lysosome (or vacuole). MAP1A and MAP1B are microtubule-associated proteins which mediate the physical interactions between microtubules and components of the cytoskeleton. These proteins are involved in formation of autophagosomal vacuoles (autophagosomes). MAP1A and MAP1B each consist of a heavy chain subunit and multiple light chain subunits. MAP1LC3c is one of the light chain subunits and can associate with either MAP1A or MAP1B. The precursor molecule is cleaved by APG4B/ATG4B to form the cytosolic form, LC3-I. This is activated by APG7L/ATG7, transferred to ATG3 and conjugated to phospholipid to form the membrane-bound form, LC3-II.
