26794413 Collectively, our findings indicate that MIR494 reduces cell survival in 769-P renal cancer cells which is accompanied by increased lipid droplet formation (which occurs in a LC3B-dependent manner) and mitochondrial changes.
26719147 Loss of HPS1 protein results in impaired autophagy that is restored by exogenous LC3B and that defective autophagy might therefore play a critical role in the development and progression of Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome.
26506894 the combined positivity for LC3B(+) puncta and nuclear HMGB1 is a positive predictor for longer BC survival
26502823 In microsatellite stable carcinomas, the level of LC3B-II expression was higher than that in the microsatellite unstable carcinomas.
26486079 Data show CGK733 induced microtubule associated protein LC3B formation upstream of AMP-activated protein kinase and protein kinase RNA-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase/CCAAT-enhancer-binding protein homologous protein pathways and p21 Cip1 expression.
26468287 FYCO1 requires a functional LC3A/B-preferring LC3-interacting Region (LIR) motif to facilitate efficient maturation of autophagosomes under basal conditions, whereas starvation-induced autophagy was unaffected
25847297 HIV-1 Tat co-localizes with microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 beta in neuronal cells
25653352 HIV-1 Tat co-localizes with microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 beta in neuronal cells
25607473 LC3B may promote the migration and invasion of EOC cells by affecting the cytoskeleton via the RhoA pathway.
25503069 mRNA levels of MAP1LC3B, an autophagic marker, showed a 5-fold decrease in symptomatic samples.
