synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 2-15 of human LC3B, conjugated to KLH via a C-terminal cysteine residue. The corresponding sequence differs by one amino acid in rat and mouse.

General description

The gene MAP1LC3B (microtubule associated protein 1 light chain 3 β) is a homolog of ATG8 gene, an autophagy-related gene in yeast. The encoded protein is called pro-MAP1LC3B, a pro-form that is cleaved by ATG4 to produce a cytosolic form called MAP1LC3B-I.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phos­phate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.


By immunoblotting, the antibody recognizes human, rat, and mouse LC3B-I and LC3B-II (~18 kDa and ~16 kDa, respectively).


Anti-LC3B antibody produced in rabbit has been used in western blotting and immunohistochemistry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

MAP1LC3B-I (microtubule associated protein 1 light chain 3 β-I) conjugates with MAP1LC3B-II before being inserted into both inner and outer membranes of the growing autophagic vesicle during autophagy. The cellular distribution and processing of MAP1LC3B facilitates monitoring of autophagy. Cells that lack MAP1LC3B are found to be defective in the formation of autophagic vesicles, with altered phenotypes associated with the role of autophagy in energy homeostasis and removal of protein aggregates. It can serve as an autophagic marker.
