The MUTYH DNA-glycosylase is indirectly engaged in the repair of the miscoding 7,8-dihydro-8-oxo-2'-deoxyguanine (8-oxodG) lesion by removing adenine erroneously incorporated opposite the oxidized purine. Inherited biallelic mutations in the MUTYH gene are responsible for a recessive syndrome, the MUTYH-associated polyposis (MAP), which confers an increased(More)
Macro-autophagy (autophagy) is a conserved catabolic pathway for the degradation of cytoplasmic material in the lysosomal system. This is achieved by the sequestration of the cytoplasmic cargo material within double membrane-bound vesicles that fuse with lysosomes, wherein the vesicle's inner membrane and the cargo are degraded. Autophagosomes form in a de(More)
Autophagy is a major pathway for the clearance of harmful material from the cytoplasm. During autophagy, cytoplasmic material is delivered into the lysosomal system by organelles called autophagosomes. Autophagosomes form in a de novo manner and, in the course of their formation, isolate cargo material from the rest of the cytoplasm. Cargo specificity is(More)
