GABARAPL1 (GABARAP-like protein 1), also named as ATG8, GEC1, APG8L, ATG8L and APG8-LIKE, is a member of GABARP (GABAA receptor-associated protein) family. GABARAPL1 was initially identified as estrogen-regulated gene and the protein acts in receptor and vesicle transport. It’s also involved in the process of autophagy like GABARAP and GABARAPL2, and may be considered as an autophagic marker. It is expressed at very high levels in the brain, heart, peripheral blood leukocytes, liver, kidney, placenta and skeletal muscle and at very low levels in thymus and small intestine.
