Mammalian Apg12p, but not the Apg12p.Apg5p conjugate, facilitates LC3 processing.

Abstract

A dynamic membrane rearrangement occurs in cells during autophagy to form autophagosomes. In this dynamic process, two ubiquitin-like modifications, Apg12p-conjugation and LC3-modification, are essential for the formation of autophagosomes. Apg7p and Apg10p catalyze the conjugation of Apg12p to Apg5p. The same Apg7p and Apg3p catalyze the processing of LC3… (More)
