HeLa Chloroquine Treated / Untreated Cell Lysate Summary

NBP2-49689 contains 1 vial each of 0.1ml of HeLa Chloroquine treated and 0.1ml of HeLa untreated cell lysate. This lysate set is useful as a positive and negative controls for targets such as LC3, p62 etc. and the researchers should use anti-Human primary antibodies when working with these lysates.
Autophagy/LC3 Positive Control
HeLa cells were cultured under standard laboratory conditions until semi-confluent (70-80%). The cells were then treated with or without Chloroquine to 50 uM for 24 hours. The cells were washed in PBS and directly lysed into 1X Laemmli sample buffer containing BME. Each lysate is sonicated and boiled before being tested in Western blot for reactivity to LC3. Tubulin reactivity in each lysate is shown as a loading control.

Application Notes
HeLa Chloroquine treated / untreated whole cell lysates are provided as positive and negative control for Western blot analysis in Autophagy research. The lysates are provided as one vial of treated and one vial of untreated samples. Use 10 ul per lane for a standard mini-gel blot (approx. 1 mg/ml).

Packaging, Storage & Formulations

Aliquot and store at -20C or -80C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
The protein lysate is prepared in 1x Laemmli sample buffer with BME. Boiling before loading is not necessary.

Alternate Names for HeLa Chloroquine Treated / Untreated Cell Lysate

  • LC3 Lysate
  • LC3B western blot


Chloroquine (CQ) or N4-(7-Chloro-4-quinolinyl)-N1,N1-dimethyl-1,4-pentanediamine diphosphate salt (C18H26ClN3. 2H3PO4) is an anti-malarial drug which is well known for its inhibitory effects on apoptosis and autophagy in various cell lines. CQ is a weak base which can partition into the acidic vesicles such as endosomes and lysosomes, thereby, resulting in the inhibition of endosomal acidification and lysosomal enzyme activity. Lysosomotropic autophagy inhibitor CQ decreases the activity of lysosomal acid hydrolase enzymes which impairs the lysosomal function (lysosomal degradation of autophagosomes) ultimately resulting in the accumulation of autophagosomes. Because autophagosomal membranes are rich in lapidated form of LC3 protein (LC3-II), CQ treated cells are often exploited for their usefulness as positive controls in autophagy related research, especially for Western blot and ICC/IF analysis of LC3 of cultured cells. In ICC/IF, the CQ treated cells would be expected to show an enhanced number of autophagosomes compared to vehicle treated cells. Similarly, in WB analysis, the lysate of the CQ treated cells must show an enhanced LC3-II levels compared to the lysate of vehicle treated cells. HeLa Chloroquine Treated / Untreated Cell Lysate [NBP2-49689] is provided as a ready to use pair of lysates, 0.1ml of HeLa Chloroquine treated (positive control) and 0.1ml of HeLa untreated (negative control), for Western blot with anti-Human LC3 or p62 antibodies. NBP2-49689 has been validated using monoclonal as well as polyclonal anti-LC3 and antibodies, and the lysate of CQ treated cells depicted an increased level of LC3-II (see data image).
