Background MAP1A and MAP1B are microtubule-associated proteins which mediate the physical interactions between microtubules and components of the cytoskeleton. MAP1A and MAP1B each consist of a heavy chain subunit and multiple light chain subunits. The protein encoded by this gene is one of the light chain subunits and can associate with either MAP1A or MAP1B. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
Synonyms: MAP1LC3A, microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 alpha, RP11-346K17.1, LC3, LC3A, MAP1ALC3, MAP1BLC3, MAP1 light chain 3-like protein 1, MAP1A/1B light chain 3 A, MAP1A/MAP1B LC3 A, MAP1A/MAP1B light chain 3 A, OTTHUMP00000030698, autophagy-relate

(TOP LEFT)Western blot analysis of anti-LC3 Mab (ABIN387792) at 8 µg/mL. Lane 1: Y79 (soluble fraction of cell extract), Lane 2: 293 transfected with human LC3 (whole cell extract). (TOP RIGHT)Mouse cerebellar cell lines stably expressing human GFP-LC3 fusion protein were evaluated by immunocytochemistry using the anti-LC3 monoclonal antibody ABIN387792. Punctuate autophagic cell vesicles , with numerous GFP-LC3 vesicles are displayed. Conditions: 1:1 methanol:acetone fixation, 0.2% saponin permeabilization. (BOTTOM) Western blot analysis of anti-LC3 Mab (ABIN387792) Hela cell lysates, which were treated with rapamycin or bafilomycin overnight.

(TOP) 10X( lower panel) and 20X (upper panel) immunohistochemistry images from muscle tissue of a diseased mouse off Dox after 5 weeks on regular food. Several fibers that have autophagic vesicles throughout are visible. Primary antibody used is ABIN387792. Data courtesy of Dr. Christy Caudill, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. (MIDDLE) Cathepsin D WT vs KO (postnatal day 25) mouse thalamus exhibiting clumped immunoreactivity for LC3 in the KO brain (arrows, upper panel) and relative absence of clumped LC3 immunoreactivity in the WT control (staining is diffuse and cytoplasmic, lower panel).
