Autophagy is a catabolic process that results in the degradation of bulk cytoplasmic contents within autophagosomes and lysosomes. Recent studies demonstrated that Atg4D is a substrate for caspase-3 during apoptosis. Truncated Atg4D has increased priming and delipidation effects on the Atg8 paralogue GABARAP-L1 in vitro and induces cell death when overexpressed in human cells. In addition, Atg4D-mediated apoptosis is facilitated by a putative C-terminal BH3 domain and is preceded by recruitment of Atg4D to mitochondria, suggesting that Atg4D plays an important role at the interface between autophagy and apoptosis.
Antigen: Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids at the C-terminus of human Atg4D.
