You will find here various informations, such as articles or videos, on autophagy, its physiopathological functions as well as methodological approaches.

Endosomal dynamics upon autophagy induction.

This video by J. Da Graca presents the dynamics of early endosomes in response to nutritional stress.

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 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.
