Microtubule-associated proteins 1A/1B light chain 3B - Q9GZQ8 (MLP3B_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Ubiquitin-like modifier involved in formation of autophagosomal vacuoles (autophagosomes). Plays a role in mitophagy which contributes to regulate mitochondrial quantity and quality by eliminating the mitochondria to a basal level to fulfill cellular energy requirements and preventing excess ROS production (PubMed:28017329). While LC3s are involved in elongation of the phagophore membrane, the GABARAP/GATE-16 subfamily is essential for a later stage in autophagosome maturation. Promotes primary ciliogenesis by removing OFD1 from centriolar satellites via the autophagic pathway. Through its interaction with the reticulophagy receptor TEX264, participates in the remodeling of subdomains of the endoplasmic reticulum into autophagosomes upon nutrient stress, which then fuse with lysosomes for endoplasmic reticulum turnover (PubMed:31006538, PubMed:31006537).

Subunit Structure
3 different light chains, LC1, LC2 and LC3, can associate with MAP1A and MAP1B proteins (By similarity). Interacts at microtubules with CABP1 (via EF-hands 1 and 2) but not with calmodulin (PubMed:15095872). Interacts with FYCO1 (via C-terminus) (PubMed:20100911, PubMed:24089205). Interacts with TP53INP1 and TP53INP2 (PubMed:22470510). Interacts with TBC1D25 (PubMed:21383079). Directly interacts with SQSTM1; this interaction leads to MAP1LC3B recruitment to inclusion bodies containing polyubiquitinated protein aggregates and to inclusion body degradation by autophagy (PubMed:17580304, PubMed:24089205, PubMed:24668264, PubMed:18524774). Interacts with ATG4B, MAPK15 and BNIP3 (PubMed:22948227, PubMed:23209295). Interacts with MAPB1, KEAP1, PCM1, OFD1, CEP131, and TECPR2 (PubMed:20562859, PubMed:24089205). Interacts with TBC1D5 (PubMed:22354992). Found in a complex with UBQLN1 and UBQLN2 (PubMed:20529957). Interacts with UBQLN4 (via STI1 1 and 2 domains). Interacts with UBQLN1 in the presence of UBQLN4 (PubMed:23459205). Interacts with ATG13 (PubMed:24290141). Interacts with RETREG2, RETREG1 and RETREG3 (PubMed:26040720). No interaction, or very weak, with WDFY3 (PubMed:24668264). Interacts with PLCL1; the interaction inhibits autophagosome formation (By similarity). Interacts with TRIM16 (PubMed:30143514). Interacts with CRY1 and PER2 (By similarity). Interacts with the reticulophagy receptor TEX264 (PubMed:31006538, PubMed:31006537). Membrane-bound form LC3-II interacts with PHB and PHB2; the interaction takes place upon Parkin-mediated mitochondrial damage (PubMed:28017329). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
