APG5 (APG5 Autophagy 5-like, APG5-like, APG5L, Apoptosis-specific Protein, ASP, ATG5 Autophagy-related 5 Homolog, Autophagy Protein 5, hAPG5, Homolog of S Cerevisiae Autophagy 5)
Description:
Autophagy is a catabolic process for the autophagosomic- lysosomal degradation of bulk cytoplasmic contents (1,2). Autophagy is generally activated by conditions of nutrient deprivation but has also been associated with a number of physiological processes including development, differentiation, neurodegenerative diseases, infection and cancer (3). The molecular machinery of autophagy was largely discovered in yeast and referred to as autophagy-related (Atg) genes. Formation of the autophagosome involves a ubiquitin-like conjugation system in which Atg12 is covalently bound to Atg5 and targeted to autophagosome vesicles (4-6). This conjugation reaction is mediated by the ubiquitin-E1-like enzyme Atg7 and the E2-like enzyme Atg10 (7,8).

Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:1000
Immunoprecipitation: 1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.

Immunogen:
Synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the carboxyl-terminus of Atg5. (KLH)
Purity:
Purified by peptide affinity chromatography.
Form
Supplied as a liquid in 10mM sodium HEPES, pH 7.5, 150mM sodium chloride, 0.1mg/ml BSA, 50% glycerol.
Specificity:
Recognizes endogenous levels of total human Atg5. The observed band represents the Atg12-Atg5 conjugated form, but likely reacts with free Atg5 as well. Species sequence homology: monkey.
