Endogenous LC3 punctae detected with anti-LC3 monoclonal antibody.

The majority of LC3 was diffusely localized in unstimulated (A) COS7 cells, whereas punctuated signals of LC3 signals of increase after induction of autophagy by vinblastine-stimulation for 2 hours (B). Cells were fixed in paraformaldehyd, followed by methanol. Permeabilization was performed with 0.3% Triton X-100 and endogenous LC3 subsequently detected by MAb 5F10

Immunoblot analysis of LC3 and Beclin using anti-LC3- and anti-Beclin monoclonal antibodies.

Whole cell lysates of Neuro2A  cells were applied to SDS-PAGE. The immunoblots were probed with the indicated monoclonal antibodies for 1h at RT and developed by ECL (exp. time 30 sec).

Detection of endogenous Rictor and Raptor
Whole cell lysates of serum-starved tumor cells (20.000 cells per lane) were applied to SDS-PAGE and transferred to PVDF membrane. Immunoblot were probed with (4) mab Rictor-1G11 (0.5µg/ml) and (5) mab Raptor-10E10 (0.5µg/ml) for 1h at RT.
