Anti LC3 monoclonal antibody



LC3B is one of the mammalian Atg8 homologs and widely used as an autophagosome marker. Immediately after synthesis, LC3 is processed by Atg4 and becomes LC3-I. Upon induction of autophagy, the C-terminal glycine of LC3-I is conjugated to phosphatidylethanolamine, resulting in formation of membrane-bound LC3-II. Most LC3-II is thought be present on autophagosome membrane. The autophagosome subsequently fuses with a lysosome, where inside materials, including LC3-II, are degraded. The expression level of LC3-II generally correlates with the number of autophagosome


Western Blot: 1/500-1/1,000.
Predicted molecular weight: LC3-I is 18 kDa and LC3-II is 16 kDa
