LC3I Antibody [Biotin]

Product Information

Product Overview:

LC3I (also known as LC3A, MAP1A, MAP1B, and Microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 alpha) is one of the light chain components of the microtubule-associated proteins that regulate physical interactions between microtubules and portions of the cytoskeleton. LC3A also plays a role in the formation of autophagosomal vacuoles (autophagosomes). LC3I is mostly expressed in brain, liver, heart, skeletal muscle, and testis. Conversely, LC3I is not expressed in thymus, and has low expression in peripheral blood leukocytes which can be directly attributed to coronary artery disease (CAD) where autophagosome formation is decreased. The decrease in autophagosome formation is directly correlated to a decrease in LC3A expression and the autophagy of circulating leukocytes contributes to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (PMID: 21812771). Furthermore, LC3A and its role in autophagy, has been used in studies of tumor hypoxia and virology (PMID: 21537144, 21507968).


This LC3I antibody is useful for Western Blot, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, and IHC-paraffin embedded sections. In Western Blot, a band is seen ~15kDa representing LC3I. In ICC/IF, observed staining showed inactivated LC3 throughout the cytoplasm of Neuro2a cells. In IHC-P, staining was observed in the cytoplasm of mouse testes tissue. Prior to immunostaining paraffin tissues, antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended.
