Description: Rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody for Autophagy protein 5(ATG5) detection. Tested with WB in Human, Mouse, Rat.
Background: Autophagy protein 5 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ATG5 gene. It is also known as APG5 or ASP, and this gene is mapped to 6q21. It is found that knockdown of ATG5 in hepatocytes increased triglyceride levels with oleate or a second endogenous stimulus for triglyceride formation. These hepatocytes with ATG5 knockdown also had increased lipid droplet number and size. ATG5 is an E3 ubiquitin ligase which is necessary for autophagy due to its role in autophagosome elongation. It is activated by ATG7 and forms a complex with ATG12 and ATG16L1. This complex is necessary for LC3-1 conjugation to PE to form LC3-II.
Immunogen: A synthetic peptide corresponding to a sequence in the middle region of human APG5L (82-97aa DRFDQFWAINRKLMEY), identical to the related mouse sequence, and different from the related rat sequence by one amino acid. Contents: Each vial contains 5mg BSA, 0.9mg NaCl, 0.2mg Na2HPO4, 0.05mg Thimerosal, 0.05mg NaN3.
Reconstitution: Add 0.2ml of distilled water will yield a concentration of 500ug/ml. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing ATG5 are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as ATG5 may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results.
