Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 16, 18 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 14 kDa).Can be blocked with Rat MAP1LC3A peptide (ab64589) or Rat MAP1LC3A peptide (ab64590).


  • FunctionProbably involved in formation of autophagosomal vacuoles (autophagosomes).
  • Tissue specificityMost abundant in heart, brain, liver, skeletal muscle and testis but absent in thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the MAP1 LC3 family.
  • Post-translational
    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.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Endomembrane system. Cytoplasmic vesicle > autophagosome membrane. LC3-II binds to the autophagic membranes.
