General Information

Product name Anti-ATG4A Antibody
Short Description Rabbit polyclonal to ATG4A
Description Autophagy is the process by which endogenous proteins and damaged organelles are destroyed intracellularly. Autophagy is postulated to be essential for cell homeostasis and cell remodeling during differentiation, metamorphosis, non-apoptotic cell death, and aging. Reduced levels of autophagy have been described in some malignant tumors, and a role for autophagy in controlling the unregulated cell growth linked to cancer has been proposed. This gene encodes a member of the autophagin protein family. The encoded protein is also designated as a member of the C-54 family of cysteine proteases.

Function Cysteine protease required for the cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt) and autophagy, Cleaves the C-terminal amino acid of ATG8 family proteins to reveal a C-terminal glycine, Exposure of the glycine at the C-terminus is essential for ATG8 proteins conjugation to phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and insertion to membranes, which is necessary for autophagy, Preferred substrate is GABARAPL2 followed by MAP1LC3A and GABARAP, Has also an activity of delipidating enzyme for the PE-conjugated forms.
Cellular Localization Cytoplasm
Tissue Specificity Widely expressed, at a low level, and the highest expression is observed in skeletal muscle and brain, also detected in fetal liver.
