GABARAPL1 Information: GABARAPL1 Protein, GABARAPL1 Antibody and GABARAPL1 Gene

GABARAPL1 Gene family


GABARAPL1 protein function

Ubiquitin-like modifier that increases cell-surface expression of kappa-type opioid receptor through facilitating anterograde intracellular trafficking of the receptor. Involved in formation of autophagosomal vacuoles. Whereas LC3s are involved in elongation of the phagophore membrane, the GABARAP/GATE-16 subfamily is essential for a later stage in autophagosome maturation. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:16431922, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20404487}.

GABARAPL1 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Ubiquitous. Expressed at very high levels in the brain, heart, peripheral blood leukocytes, liver, kidney, placenta and skeletal muscle. Expressed at very low levels in thymus and small intestine. In the brain, expression is particularly intense in motoneurons in the embryo and in neurons involved in somatomotor and neuroendocrine functions in the adult, particularly in the substantia nigra pars compacta.
