Light chain 3 (LC3) is a microtubule-associated protein with an approximate molecular mass of 17kDa, and can be found ubiquitously throughout mammalian tissue. LC3 plays a role in autophagy; once the autophagic process is initiated in a cell, LC3 is conjugated to phosphatidylethanolamine to form LC3-II. This molecule is recruited to the autophagosome at the time of fusion with lysosomes, and LC3-II in autolysosomal lumen is degraded. Therefore, monitoring LC3 is an important tool for detecting autophagy and autophagy-related processes. LC3A is one of three isoforms which exhibits abundant expression in the heart, brain, liver, skeletal muscle, and testis but is absent in thymus and peripheral blood leukocytes.
