|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||NP_115903, 14210522|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 13 kDa |
Observed: 18 kDa
|Application Notes||MAP1LC3 antibody can be used for detection of MAP1LC3 by Western blot at 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Antibody can also be used for Immunohistochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||MAP1LC3A; MAP1LC3 antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. Multiple isoforms MAP1LC3 are known to exist. MAP1LC3 antibody is predicted to detect MAP1LC3A, MAP1LC3B, and MAP1LC3C.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||MAP1LC3 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||MAP1LC3 Antibody 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.|

Microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) regulate microtubule stability and play critical roles in neuronal development and plasticity (1). MAP1LC3 is a subfamily of three related proteins belonging to the MAP1 LC3 family and it includes MAP1LC3A, MAP1LC3B, and MAP1LC3C (2). MAP1LC3 is the mammalian homolog of yeast ATG8 and is essential for autophagy and associated with the autophagosome membranes after processing (3). The three isoforms exhibit distinct expression patterns and both MAP1LC3A and MAP1LC3B but not MAP1LC3B, are post-translationally modified, suggesting the three isoforms may have different physiological functions (4).
