  • Function

    Plays an essential role in autophagy: interacts with ATG12-ATG5 to mediate the conjugation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) to LC3 (MAP1LC3A, MAP1LC3B or MAP1LC3C), to produce a membrane-bound activated form of LC3 named LC3-II. Thereby, controls the elongation of the nascent autophagosomal membrane.
  • Involvement in disease

    Inflammatory bowel disease 10
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the WD repeat ATG16 family.
    Contains 7 WD repeats.
  • Post-translational

    Proteolytic cleavage by activated CASP3 leads to degradation and may regulate autophagy upon cellular stress and apoptotic stimuli.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Preautophagosomal structure membrane. Recruited to omegasomes membranes by WIPI2. Omegasomes are endoplasmic reticulum connected strutures at the origin of preautophagosomal structures. Localized to preautophagosomal structure (PAS) where it is involved in the membrane targeting of ATG5. Localizes also to discrete punctae along the ciliary axoneme.
