Importance of LC3 in Autophagy

Last updated: 11th January, 2016

LC3 plays an integral role as an autophagosome maker, because it resides in the entire process of autophagosome formation. Upon autophagy induction, LC3-I, a small and soluble cytoplasmic protein, is conjugated with a phospholipid which anchors it to the autophagosomal membrane as LC3-II. Autophagy can be induced by nutrient deprivation.

MBL’s polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies can be used to quantify LC3-I and LC3-II levels within the cell.
