Optimal dilution of this antibody should be experimentally determined. Useful for WB, ICC/IF, and IHC-P. In WB, a band is seen ~56 kDa representing the ATG5-ATG12 complex, the molecular weight of human ATG5 is ~33 kDa. In ICC/IF, cytoplasmic staining was observed in SY5Y cells. In IHC-P, staining was observed in the cytoplasm of human hepatocytes and mouse intestine tissues. Prior to immunostaining paraffin tissues, antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended.

Autophagy is an important mechanism for nonselective intracellular breakdown whereby cytosol and organelles are encapsulated in vesicles, which are then engulfed and digested by lytic vacuoles/lysosomes. ATG5 is required for autophagy. It conjugates to ATG12 and associates with isolation membrane to form autophagosomes. The conjugate detaches from the membrane immediately before or after autophagosome formation is completed. Conjugation to ATG12 is essential for autophagy, but is not required for association with isolation membrane. ATG5 also plays an important role in the apoptotic process. Its expression is a relatively late event in the apoptotic process, occurring downstream of caspase activity.

ATG9A - early marker autophagosome assembly ATG9A is the only essential integral membrane protein involved in autophagy. ATG9A contains six transmembrane domains and initiates the assembly of autophagosomes. The autophagosome is a double-membrane structure that engulfs and eventually degrade... Read full blog post.
ATG5: Roles in Cellular Defense ATG5, or Autophagy Related 5, is a protein crucial for autophagy. Autophagy is a mechanism in which dysfunctional or pathogenic cells or cellular components are degraded and sometimes recycled. This process happens when ATG5 conjugates with another pr...

ATG5, Autophagy and Apoptosis ATG5 is a member of the ATG family that regulates autophagy, the evolutionary conserved homeostatic response to a diverse variety of self- and foreign-originating cellular stresses. ATG5 is ubiquitously expressed in cells and found co-localized with c... Read full blog post.
ATG5: From Autophagy to Alzheimer's Disease Autophagy is a conserved mechanism whereby cells form double membrane autophagosomes to sequester cytoplasmic components for subsequent destruction by fusion with lysosomes (eukaryotes) or vacuoles (yeast). Targets of autophagy include aging proteins,... Read full blog post.
