Rabbit anti-ATG5 (N-terminal) recognizes human, rat, and mouse Atg5-Atg12 complex.


synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 2-15 of human ATG5, conjugated to KLH via a C-terminal cysteine residue. The corresponding sequence is identical in rat and mouse.


Rabbit anti-ATG5 has been used for immunofluorescence and chemiluminescent western blot analyses.
Rabbit anti-ATG5 (N-terminal specific) was used for western blot analysis to detect the level of ATG5 in SK-N-MC cells after transduction with an adenovirus expressing a shRNA specific to ATG5.
Anti-ATG5 (N-terminal) antibody has been used:
  • in immunoblotting
  • in immunofluorescence
  • in western blotting

Biochem/physiol Actions

Atg5 (Apg5) is a 32 kDa protein that is required for autophagy. Atg5 is covalently modified by Atg12, a ubiquitin-like modifier. The Atg12-Atg5-Atg16 complex thus formed, localizes to autophagosome precursors and regulates autophagosome formation. Studies have reported that Atg5 fragment that is formed by calpain cleavage has pro-apoptotic properties.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is an intracellular pathogen that can survive within phagocytic cells by inhibiting phagolysosome biogenesis. However, host cells can control the intracellular M. tuberculosis burden by the induction of autophagy. The mechanism of autophagosome formation to M. tuberculosis has
