  • Although LC3 is currently thought to function primarily in the cytosol, the site of autophagosome formation, EGFP-LC3 often appears to be enriched in the nucleoplasm relative to the cytoplasm in published fluorescence images.

  • The autophagosome fuses with the lytic lysosome to form autophagolysosomes that degrades engulfed molecules

  • Since bafilomycin A1 inhibits the degradation of autophagosomes, the levels of LC3-II in bafilomycin A1-treated cells reflect the rate of autophagosome formation

  • Induction of autophagy led to a visible decrease in levels of soluble EGFP-LC3 relative to autophagosome-bound protein, but had only modest effects on the nucleo-cytoplasmic ratio or diffusional mobility of the remaining soluble pools of EGFP-LC3.
