Autophagy is a process of intracellular bulk degradation in which cytoplasmic components, including organelles, are sequestered within double-membrane vesicles that deliver the contents to the lysosome/vacuole for degradation. During macroautophagy, the sequestering vesicles, termed autophagosomes, fuse with the lysosome or vacuole resulting in the delivery of an inner vesicle (autophagic body) into the lumen of the degradative compartment. There are 16 proteins participating in the autophagy pathway in humans. The autophagy protein LC3, a mammalian homologue of Atg8, was originally identified as microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3. It is a component of both the MAP1A and MAP1B microtubule-binding domains and the heavy-chain independent regulation of LC3 expression may modify MAP1 microtubule-binding activity during development. LC3 is the only known mammalian protein identified that stably associates with the autophagosome membranes. LC3-I is cytosolic and LC3-II is membrane bound and enriched in the autophagic vacuole fraction. The detection of LC3-I to LC3-II conversion is a useful and sensitive marker for distinguishing autophagy in mammalian cells.

FAQs for LC3B Antibody (NB600-1384). (Showing 1 - 4 of 4 FAQs).
What is the immunogen sequence of this antibody?
The exact immunogen sequence is proprietary, however we can tell you that the immunogen sequence can be found between amino acids 1-50 of human LC3B.
Does this antibody also recognize mouse LC3A?
This antibody does not cross-react with LC3A. If you are interested in detecting mouse LC3A and LC3B, you may want to consider purchasing our LC3/LC3B antibody pack, NB910-40752.
Is it possible to provide me the suggested dilution of Electron Microscopy and IHC of NB600-1384?
Electron microscopy was performed by a customer, so unfortunately, we do not have their dilution information. For IHC, we recommend a dilution of 1:400.
What % gel used for WB to obtain the separation of the LC3BI and II bands?
We prefer to use a 4-20% gradient gel to get ample separation between the LC3BI and II bands. If you are using a single percentage gel, a 12% or higher gel should separate the lower weights enough for proper detection.
LC3B: From Autophagy to Cancer LC3B is subunit component of the LC3 autophagy biomarker associated with microtubule-associated proteins MAP1A and MAP1B and one of the best characterized markers to date. In resting state it is cytosolic, but upon activation, is lapidated and becomes... Read full blog post.
