Background Information

LC3B, also named as MAP1LC3B, MAP1A/1BLC3, belongs to the MAP1 LC3 family. It is a subunit of neuronal microtubule-associated MAP1A and MAP1B proteins, which are involved in microtubule assembly and important for neurogenesis. In cell biology, autophagy, or autophagocytosis, is a catabolic process involving the degradation of a cell's own components through the lysosomalmachinery. It is a major mechanism by which a starving cell reallocates nutrients from unnecessary processes to more-essential processes. Two forms of LC3, called LC3-I (17-19kd) and -II(14-16kd), were produced post-translationally in various cells. LC3-I is cytosolic, whereas LC3-II is membrane bound. The precursor molecule is cleaved by APG4B/ATG4B to form the cytosolic form, LC3-I. This is activated by APG7L/ATG7, transferred to ATG3 and conjugated to phospholipid to form the membrane-bound form, LC3-II. The amount of LC3-II is correlated with the extent of autophagosome formation. LC3-II is the first mammalian protein identified that specifically associates with autophagosome membranes. MAP1LC3 has 3 isoforms MAP1LC3A, MAP1LC3B and MAP1LC3C. MAP1LC3A and MAP1LC3C are produced by the proteolytic cleavage after the conserved C-terminal Gly residue, like their rat counterpart, MAP1LC3B does not undergo C-terminal cleavage and exists in a single modified form. This antibody is specific to LC3B.
