LC3 Antibody (APG8c) (N-term) Blocking Peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession Q9BXW4
Clone Names 5020906
Peptide ID 5020906
Additional Information
Gene ID 440738
Other Names Microtubule-associated proteins 1A/1B light chain 3C, Autophagy-related protein LC3 C, Autophagy-related ubiquitin-like modifier LC3 C, MAP1 light chain 3-like protein 3, MAP1A/MAP1B light chain 3 C, MAP1A/MAP1B LC3 C, Microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 gamma, MAP1LC3C
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1804a was selected from the N-terminal region of human LC3 (APG8c). A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.
Format The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. 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.

Autophagy is a process of intracellular bulk degradation in which cytoplasmic components including organelles are sequestered within double-membrane vesicles that deliver the contents to the lysosome/vacuole for degradation. There are three primary forms of autophagy: chaperone-mediated autophagy, microautophagy and macroautophagy. During macroautophagy, the sequestering vesicles, termed autophagosomes, fuse with the lysosome or vacuole resulting in the delivery of an inner vesicle (autophagic body) into the lumen of the degradative compartment. There are 16 proteins participating in autophagy pathway in human ( KW=Autophagy&view=tree). Abgent?s exclusive product line for autophagy research, 2-4 epitopes for each protein, provides antibodies against each protein in the pathway.
