Gene information for MAP1LC3B (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID81631
Official gene symbolMAP1LC3B
Full namemicrotubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 beta
Gene summary The product of this gene is a subunit of neuronal microtubule-associated MAP1A and MAP1B proteins, which are involved in microtubule assembly and important for neurogenesis. Studies on the rat homolog implicate a role for this gene in autophagy, a process that involves the bulk degradation of cytoplasmic component. [provided by RefSeq]
