Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting
Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Monkey.
Specificity / Sensitivity
GABARAP Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total GABARAP protein. This antibody does not cross-react with other GABARAP family members; an unknown background band is detected at 70 kDa.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Arg40 of human GABARAP protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
GABAA receptor associated protein (GABARAP), which was originally discovered as a protein associated with the GABAA receptor regulating receptor trafficking to the plasma membrane (1), is part of the Atg8 family with a key role in autophagy. Proteins in this family, including micotubulin light chain 3 (LC3) and GATE-16, become incorporated into the autophagosomal membranes following autophagic stimuli such as starvation (2). Like the other family members, GABARAP is cleaved at its carboxyl terminus, which leads to conjugation by either of the phospholipids phosphatidylethanolamine or phosphatidylserine (3,4). This processing converts GABARAP from a type I to a type II membrane bound form involved in autophagsome biogenesis. Processing of GABARAP involves cleavage by Atg4 family members (5,6) followed by conjugation by the E1 and E2 like enzymes Atg7 and Atg3 (7,8). GABARAPL1/GEC1, a protein that is highly related to GABARAP, was identified as an estrogen inducible gene, and is also associated with autophagosomes (9-11).
