Importance of LC3 in Autophagy

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.
