General description

The gene LC3, also referred to as MAP1LC3A (microtubule associated protein 1 light chain 3 α), is a homologue of Apg8p necessary for autophagy in yeast. The cytosolic form upon processing gets localized to the autophagosome membranes. The gene is mapped to human chromosome 20q11.22. LC3 exists in cells as cytoplasmic LC3-I (18kDa) and LC3-II (16kDa).

Immunogen

Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids of human LC3A isoform a, conjugated to KLH via C-terminal cysteine residue. The corresponding sequence is identical in rat and mouse.

Application

Anti-LC3 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in:
  • western blotting
  • immunofluorescence
  • immunohistochemistry
  • filter retardation assay
  • immunocytochemistry
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Immunofluorescence (3 papers)
Immunohistochemistry (1 paper)
Western Blotting (21 paper)

Biochem/physiol Actions

The gene MAP1LC3A (microtubule associated protein 1 light chain 3 α) encodes a protein that serves as a marker of autophagosomes. It is found to be expressed on surviving oligodendrocytes in Nasu-Hakola disease brains and may be involved in the induction of oligodendrogliopathy.

Physical form

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

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing 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.
