SPECIES REACTIVITY:Human, Mouse, Rat
HOMOLOGY:Predicted species reactivity based on immunogen sequence: Bovine: (94%), Chicken: (88%)
TESTED APPLICATIONS:ELISA, IF, IHC-P, WB
APPLICATIONS:ATG4B antibody can be used for detection of ATG4B by Western blot at 1 - 2 μg/ml. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 μg/mL.
USER NOTE:Optimal dilutions for each application to be determined by the researcher.
POSITIVE CONTROL:1) Cat. No. 1225 - Ramos Cell Lysate
 2) Cat. No. 1205 - Jurkat Cell Lysate
 3) Cat. No. 1306 - Human Spleen Tissue Lysate
 4) Cat. No. 10-901 - Human Spleen Tissue Slide
PREDICTED MOLECULAR WEIGHT:Predicted: 43 kDa

Observed: 46 kDa
SPECIFICITY:ATG4B antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. At least two isoforms of ATG4B are known to exist; this antibody will detect only the larger isoform. ATG4B is predicted to not cross-react with other ATG4 proteins.
IMMUNOGEN:ATG4B antibody was raised against a 17 amino acid peptide near the carboxy terminus of human ATG4B.

The immunogen is located within the last 50 amino acids of ATG4B.
HOST SPECIES:Rabbit

Properties

PURIFICATION:ATG4B antibody is affinity chromatography purified via peptide column.
PHYSICAL STATE:Liquid
BUFFER:ATG4B antibody is supplied in PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.
CONCENTRATION:1 mg/mL
STORAGE CONDITIONS:ATG4B antibody can be stored at 4˚C for three months and -20˚C, stable for up to one year.
CLONALITY:Polyclonal
ISOTYPE:IgG
CONJUGATE:Unconjugated

Background

BACKGROUND:Autophagy, the process of bulk degradation of cellular proteins through an autophagosomic-lysosomal pathway is important for normal growth control and may be defective in tumor cells. It is involved in the preservation of cellular nutrients under starvation conditions as well as the normal turnover of cytosolic components (1,2). ATG4B, also known as AUTL1, is one of four mammalian orthologs of the yeast ATG4 protein; all four are cysteine proteases (3). ATG4 is required for ATG8 conjugation to phosphatidylethanolamine on autophagosomal membranes. In mammals, each ATG4 homolog shows a selective preference for the ATG8 homologs (4). ATG4B has been found to be a novel protective protein in inflammatory colitis (5).
