Phospho-LC3C(S12) Antibody

Peptide Affinity Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - Phospho-LC3C(S12) Antibody AP3301a
    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
  • DB - Phospho-LC3C(S12) Antibody AP3301a
    Dot blot analysis of Phospho-LC3 (APG8a) - S12 Antibody (Cat. #AP3301a) and Nonphospho-LC3 (APG8a) Antibody on nitrocellulose membrane. 50ng of Phospho-peptide or Non Phospho-peptide per dot were adsorbed. Antibody working concentrations are 0.5ug per ml.
  • WB - Phospho-LC3C(S12) Antibody AP3301a
    Immunoblots of SH-SY5Y cells treated with rapamycin for 1 h was probed with AP3301a. The data shows that treatment with rapamycin showed no significant change in level of LC3.
  • WB - Phospho-LC3C(S12) Antibody AP3301a
    Immunoblots of SH-SY5Y cells treated with MPP+ for 24h was probed with AP3301a. The data shows that treatment with MPP+ showed no significant change in level of LC3.
  • WB - Phospho-LC3C(S12) Antibody AP3301a
    Something like SH-SY5Y cells expressing GFP-LC3-WT or-S12D treated with rapamycin or vehicle for 1h.

Protein Information
Function Ubiquitin-like modifier involved in formation of autophagosomal vacuoles (autophagosomes). Whereas LC3s are involved in elongation of the phagophore membrane, the GABARAP/GATE-16 subfamily is essential for a later stage in autophagosome maturation.
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 heart, brain, liver, skeletal muscle and testis but absent in thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes.

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. MAP1LC3a 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. 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).
