Summaries for MAP1LC3C Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAP1LC3C Gene

  • Autophagy is a highly regulated bulk degradation process that plays an important role in cellular maintenance and development. MAP1LC3C is an ortholog of the yeast autophagosome protein Atg8 (He et al., 2003 [PubMed 12740394]).[supplied by OMIM, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for MAP1LC3C Gene

MAP1LC3C (Microtubule-Associated Protein 1 Light Chain 3 Gamma) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Senescence and Autophagy. An important paralog of this gene is GABARAP.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAP1LC3C Gene

  • Ubiquitin-like modifier that plays a crucial role in antibacterial autophagy (xenophagy) through the selective binding of CALCOCO2. Recruites all ATG8 family members to infecting bacteria such as S.Typhimurium.

Post-translational modifications for MAP1LC3C Gene

  • The Legionella effector RavZ is a deconjugating enzyme that produces an ATG8 product that would be resistant to reconjugation by the host machinery due to the cleavage of the reactive C-terminal glycine.
  • The precursor molecule is cleaved by ATG4B to form the cytosolic form, LC3-I. This is activated by APG7L/ATG7, transferred to ATG3 and conjugated to phospholipid to form the membrane-bound form, LC3-II (PubMed:15187094).
