How long does it take to activate autophagy ?

In this short video, Dr. Ana Maria Cuervo, co-director of the A. Einstein Institute (Bronx, NY) for Research on Aging, explains that the time required to activate autophagy is different depending on the type of autophagy.

Mechanistic of autophagy

This animated film presents the mechanism of autophagy, showing the molecular characteristics of autophagosome formation.

Autophagy during aging

This review explores alterations in autophagy that occur during aging.

Autophagy controls resource allocation and protein storage accumulation in Arabidopsis seed

These results indicate that autophagy would not simply be a degradation process but would play un role in precursor maturation of the storage protein.

ATG5 in B cell polarization and antigen presentation

The authors explored centrosome relocalization to the immune synapse for optimizing the presentation of particulate antigens.

The SEACIT complex is involved in the maintenance of vacuole/mitochondria contact sites and controls mitophagy

This article explores the molecular mechanisms of mitophagy regulation in yeast.
