MAP1LC3B2 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 140 amino acids (1-120 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 16.2kDa.MAP1LC3B2 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Microtubule-associated proteins 1A/1B light chain 3 beta 2 (MAP1LC3B2) is a member of the MAP1LC3 family. MAP1LC3B2 is a subunit of neuronal microtubule-associated MAP1A and MAP1B proteins, which are involved in microtubule assembly and essential for neurogenesis. The MAP1LC3B2 protein is possibly involved in formation of autophagosomal vacuoles (autophagosomes). MAP1LC3B2 is expressed primarily in the heart, testis, brain and skeletal muscle.
