Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/300 - 1/2000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
IHC-Fr 1/300 - 1/2000.
IHC Use at an assay dependent concentration. ab171870-Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


  • FunctionRequired for autophagy. Conjugates to ATG12 and associates with isolation membrane to form cup-shaped isolation membrane and autophagosome. The conjugate detaches from the membrane immediately before or after autophagosome formation is completed.
    May play an important role in the apoptotic process, possibly within the modified cytoskeleton. Its expression is a relatively late event in the apoptotic process, occurring downstream of caspase activity.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous. The mRNA is present at similar levels in viable and apoptotic cells, whereas the protein is dramatically highly expressed in apoptotic cells.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ATG5 family.
  • Post-translational
    Conjugated to ATG12; which is essential for autophagy, but is not required for association with isolation membrane.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Colocalizes with nonmuscle actin.
