Autophagy assay cell type - Keratinocytes

As autophagy is a multi-step process which includes not just the formation of autophagosomes, but most importantly, flux through the entire system, including the degradation upon fusion with lysosomes, which makes it quite challenging for detection. There are several methods for detection in mammalian cells, including immunoblotting analysis of LC3 and p62 and detection of autophagosome formation/maturation by fluorescence microscopy, Currently, there is no single “gold standard” for determining the autophagic activity that is applicable in every experimental context, hence it is recommended to go for the combined use of multiple methods to accurately assess the autophagic activity in any given biological setting.

LC3B Antibody

Novus Biologicals

Protocol tips
Western analysis and cytokine ELISAs (for TNF-α and IL-6) were performed, as described previously (17). NF-κB luciferase assays were also performed, as described previously (17). Briefly, cells were cotransfected with a NF-κB–luc construct and siRNA (for HaCaT cells) or transduced with Ad5HSV-NF-κB-luc. Following stimulation with MALP-2 (100 ng/ml) for 24 h, cells were lysed and their luciferase activity was analyzed using the Luciferase Assay System (Promega, Madison, WI), according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
