Publication Highlights: January 2017-April 2017

Publication Highlights: Articles on autophagy research published by french laboratories and selected by CFATG. Previous work in the field of autophagy has demonstrated that membrane damage induced by invasive bacteria elicits selective autophagy to eliminate the pathogen via lysosomal degradation. In our work published in PlosPathogens (Montespan et al. 2017) we show that adenoviruses (AdV)…

Publication Highlights: Articles on autophagy research published by french laboratories and selected by CFATG. Mitochondria are dynamic organelles organized as a tubular network whose morphology is conditioned by constant events of fission and fusion. These processes play an essential role in maintaining normal cellular function. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, physical contacts between the endoplasmic…

Publication Highlights: Articles on autophagy research published by french laboratories and selected by CFATG. Autophagy has been proposed as a cellular process contributing to pancreatic carcinogenesis, particularly in the initial stages in which the KRAS oncogene is a key element. Indeed, activation of the pathway controlled by the KRAS oncogene generates a metabolic stress, characterized…

Publication Highlights: Articles on autophagy research published by french laboratories and selected by CFATG. The primary cilium is a microtubule-based organelle that protrudes from the surface of many cell types. The PC plays a pivotal role during embryo development and tissue homeostasis. The PC, a microtubule-based structure present at the surface of numerous cell types,…

Publication Highlights: Articles on autophagy research published by french laboratories and selected by CFATG. The human cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a DNA virus belonging to the Herpesvirus family, which owns an envelope derived from host cell membranes. CMV has a large coding capacity and has developed several mechanisms to escape the innate and adaptive immune responses….
