Catalog #: AP3301a
The antibody to LC3 phosphorylated at S12 recognizes rat LC3 as well as LC3 in human cell lines and mouse primary neurons, when used at 1/500 for western blot. Phosphorylation is decreased upon autophagy induction.

In primary neurons, the band co-migrates with LC3-I. In tumor cell lines, there were additional slightly higher molecular weight bands, and in some tumor cells the ~20 kDa band predominates. An antibody to a C-terminal region of LC3 (AP1802b, 1/500) recognizes the band(s) recognized by phospho-LC3. It is unclear whether the phosphorylation affects affinity for N-terminal antibodies for LC3.
As the Journal of Cell Biology editorial policy is to remove catalog numbers from Methods, I have appended a table of antibodies used.
