Autophagy-specific subunit of the PtdIns3K complex (Atg14) is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 14q22.3. Atg14, also known as KIAA0831, is an autophagy protein.
Anti-Atg14 recognizes human and mouse Atg14.
Anti-Atg14 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in western blotting.
Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas
Autophagy Related 14 (Atg14) is an essential gene for autophagy. Atg14 is present on autophagic isolation membranes and is required for autophagosome formation. Atg14 together with vacuolar protein sorting-associated protein 34 (Vps34) and Atg6/Vps30 forms part of a phosphoinositide 3(PI3)-kinase complex in yeast. Two distinct PI3-kinase complexes, complex I and II, were identified. Complex I is involved in autophagy, whereas complex II is involved in vacuolar protein sorting. In mammals, homologs of Vps34, Vps15, Vps30/Atg6, Atg14 and Vps38 were identified as Vps34, p150, Beclin 1, Atg14 and UV radiation resistance associated gene (UVRAG), respectively. Although both Atg14 and UVRAG interact with Beclin 1, they are not present in the same complex. While Atg14 is present on autophagic isolation membranes, UVRAG mainly localized to Ras-related protein Rab9-positive endocytic compartments.

Almacenamiento y estabilidad
For continuous use, store at 2–8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze at –20 °C in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in “frost-free” freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilution samples should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.
