Autophagy is a catabolic process that results in the degradation of bulk cytoplasmic contents within autophagosomes and lysosomes. Atg12 is an ubiquitin-like protein involved in autophagy vesicle formation. Conjugation with Atg5 through a ubiquitin-like conjugating system involving also Atg7 as an E1-like activating enzyme and Atg10 as an E2-like conjugating enzyme, is essential for its function. The Atg12-Atg5 conjugate acts as an E3-like enzyme which is required for lipidation of Atg8 family proteins and their association to vesicle membranes. The Atg12-Atg5 conjugate also negatively regulates the innate antiviral immune response by blocking the type I IFN production pathway through direct association with RARRES3 and MAVS.
Antigen: Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids at the N-terminus of human Atg12.
Accession no. NP_001264712.1 Gene ID 9140 SwissProt O94817
Host Species: Rabbit
Specificity: This antibody recognizes human Atg12.
Immunoblotting: use at 1-2ug/ml. Bands of ~48-55kDa, corresponding to Atg12-Atg5 complex, are detected. Note: the predicted molecular weight of Atg12 is ~15kDa.
Immunofluorescence: use at 10ug/ml.
These are recommended concentrations. Endusers should determine optimal concentrations for their applications.
Dilute in PBS or medium that is identical to that used in the assay system.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
