WB Use at an assay dependent concentration. Detects a band of approximately 16 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 14 kDa).
Flow Cyt Use at an assay dependent concentration.

ab199376 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.

 

Target

  • Function

    Probably involved in formation of autophagosomal vacuoles (autophagosomes).
  • Tissue specificity

    Most abundant in heart, brain, liver, skeletal muscle and testis but absent in thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the MAP1 LC3 family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    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 localization

    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Endomembrane system. Cytoplasmic vesicle > autophagosome membrane. LC3-II binds to the autophagic membranes.

  • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of C6 (rat glioma) labelling MAP1LC3A with purified ab52768 at 1/500. Cells were fixed with 100% methanol. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody (Ab150077). Nuclei counterstained with DAPI (blue).

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab52768).

  • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of human keratinocytes (pannel A) and VZV-infected melanoma cells (panel E) labelling MAP1LC3A with ab52768.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab52768).

  • Overlay histogram showing SHSY-5Y cells stained with ab52768 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab52768, 1/1000 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H&L) (ab150077) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (0.1µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter. This antibody gave a positive signal in SHSY-5Y cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab52768).

  • Immunohistochemical staining of MAP1LC3A in paraffin embedded human breast carcinoma using ab52768 at a 1/100 dilution.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab52768).

    Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
