ATG4D Antibody (Center)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - ATG4D Antibody (Center) AP1811b
    Western blot analysis of anti-APG4D Pab (Cat. #AP1811b) in mouse kidney tissue lysate. APG4D(arrow) was detected using the purified Pab.
  • WB - ATG4D Antibody (Center) AP1811b
    Western blot analysis of anti-hAPG4D-L235 Pab (Cat. #AP1811b) in 293 cell line lysates transiently transfected with the APG4D gene (2ug/lane). hAPG4D-L235(arrow) was detected using the purified Pab.
  • IHC-P - ATG4D Antibody (Center) AP1811b
    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.

Protein Information
Name ATG4D
Synonyms APG4D, AUTL4
Function Cysteine protease ATG4D: Cysteine protease required for the cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt) and autophagy. Cleaves the C-terminal amino acid of ATG8 family proteins MAP1LC3 and GABARAPL2, to reveal a C-terminal glycine. Exposure of the glycine at the C-terminus is essential for ATG8 proteins conjugation to phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and insertion to membranes, which is necessary for autophagy. Has also an activity of delipidating enzyme for the PE-conjugated forms.
Cellular Location Cysteine protease ATG4D: Cytoplasm.
Tissue Location Mainly expressed in skeletal muscle and, to a lower extent, in testis.

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). APG4 is a cysteine protease required for autophagy, which cleaves the C-terminal part of either MAP1LC3, GABARAPL2 or GABARAP, allowing the liberation of form I. A subpopulation of form I is subsequently converted to a smaller form (form II). Form II, with a revealed C-terminal glycine, is considered to be the phosphatidylethanolamine (PE)-conjugated form, and has the capacity for the binding to autophagosomes.
