Target Name ATG4C
SwissProt ID Link Q96DT6
Function Cysteine protease required for the cytoplasm to vacuole transport (Cvt) and autophagy. Is not essential for autophagy development under normal conditions but is required for a proper autophagic response under stressful conditions such as prolonged starvation. Cleaves the C-terminal amino acid of ATG8 family proteins MAP1LC3 and GABARAPL2, to reveal a C-terminal glycine. Exposure of the glycine at the C-terminus is essential for ATG8 proteins conjugation to phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and insertion to membranes, which is necessary for autophagy. Has also an activity of delipidating enzyme for the PE-conjugated forms.
Subcellular Location Cytoplasm.
Tissue Specificity Highly expressed in skeletal muscle, heart, liver and testis.
Sequence Similarities Belongs to the peptidase C54 family.
