ATG5 is a member of the autophagy-related (ATG) genes family. Autophagy is a catabolic process for the autophagosomic-lysosomal degradation of bulk cytoplasmic contents. ATG5 protein is essential for autophagy. It conjugates to ATG12 and associates with isolation membrane to form autophagosomes. In addition ATG5 takes a vital part in the apoptotic process and it is expressed relatively late in the apoptotic process, downstream of caspase activity.
ATG5 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 295 amino acids (1-275a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 34.6kDa.
ATG5 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
