LC3 Antibody [DyLight 488]

LC3 Antibody [DyLight 488]

Product Information

Product Overview:

LC3, a mammalian homologue of Apg8, 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 might modify MAP1 microtubule-binding activity during development. However, LC3 is now thought to also be involved in autophagy. LC3-I is cytosolic and LC3-II is membrane bound and enriched in the autophagic vacuole fraction. LC3-II is the first mammalian protein identified that specifically associates with the autophagosome membranes.


This LC3 antibody is useful for Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry-paraffin embedded sections, Immunoprecipitation and Western Blot. Use in Immunohistochemistry-Frozen sections reported in scientific literature (PMID: 20008275) In Western blot bands are seen ~17 and 19 kDa corresponding to LC3-II and LC3-I. In some cases a non-specific band is seen at ~21 kDa in mouse protein. In ICC/IF, cytoplasmic staining was observed in HeLa cells.
