LC3, a mammalian homologue of Apg8, was originally identified as microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3. It is a component of both the MAP1A and MAP1B microtubule-binding domains and the heavy-chain independent regulation of LC3 expression might modify MAP1 microtubule-binding activity during development. However, LC3 is now thought to also be involved in autophagy. LC3-I is cytosolic and LC3-II is membrane bound and enriched in the autophagic vacuole fraction. LC3-II is the first mammalian protein identified that specifically associates with the autophagosome membranes.
