Biochem/physiol Actions

Atg5 (Apg5) is a 32 kDa protein that is required for autophagy. Atg5 is covalently modified by Atg12, a ubiquitin-like modifier. The Atg12-Atg5-Atg16 complex thus formed, localizes to autophagosome precursors and regulates autophagosome formation. Studies have reported that Atg5 fragment that is formed by calpain cleavage has pro-apoptotic properties.
