Autophagy by Daniel J. Klionsky

By Daniel J. Klionsky

Klionsky (life sciences, U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor) defines "autophagy" as "a procedure during which the cellphone generally undergoes membrane rearrangement to sequester a section of cytoplasm, carry it to a degradative organelle and recycle the macromolecular materials. He argues that, within the conventional view of organelles as mobile rubbish disposals, the continuing force towards homeostatis among phone dying and synthesis has been neglected. His creation additionally lists the recent nomenclature for 27 autophagy-related genes. In 22 different chapters, overseas individuals assessment autophagy in organisms from yeast to people and its roles in metabolism, getting older, melanoma and neuromuscular ailments. a few pix are in colour.

Example text

In contrast to macroautophagy, microautophagy in mammalian cells, defined as the sequestration of portions of the cytoplasm by invaginations of the lysosomal membrane, is quantitatively far less important than macroautophagy and does not seem to be subject to metabolic regulation (see ref. 1 for review, also see chapter 8). ” In times of food restriction, autophagy in mammalian cells becomes activated to provide the body with amino acids for gluconeogenesis, for enzyme synthesis, and for the synthesis of essential nitrogen-containing compounds.

That all autophagic-lysosomal flux occurs via amphisome formation and thus is entirely dependent on vinblastine-sensitive endosome translocation, cannot be completely excluded, since data pertinent to this point are somewhat conflicting, as discussed in the previous section. 73,80 Little is known about the molecular requirements for fusion of autophagic organelles with lysosomes. 97-99 The final degradation of autophagocytosed cytoplasmic material is presumably performed by the same lysosomal enzymes that degrade endocytosed material; however, a discussion of these enzymes is outside the scope of the present review.
