In 2008 we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, research on this topic has continued to accelerate, and many new scientists have entered the field. Our knowledge base and relevant new technologies have also been expanding. Accordingly, it is important to update these guidelines for monitoring autophagy(More)
A 73-kilodalton (kD) intracellular protein was found to bind to peptide regions that target intracellular proteins for lysosomal degradation in response to serum withdrawal. This protein cross-reacted with a monoclonal antibody raised to a member of the 70-kD heat shock protein (hsp70) family, and sequences of two internal peptides of the 73-kD protein(More)
The key regulatory enzyme in the gluconeogenesis pathway, fructose-1, 6-bisphosphatase (FBPase), is induced when Saccharomyces cerevisiae are grown in medium containing a poor carbon source. FBPase is targeted to the yeast vacuole for degradation when glucose-starved cells are replenished with fresh glucose. To identify genes involved in the FBPase(More)
Lysosomal degradation of intracellular proteins during serum withdrawal is stimulated by a member of the 70-kDa heat shock protein (hsp70) family (Chiang, H.-L., Terlecky, S. R., Plant, C. P., and Dice, J. F. (1989) Science 246, 382-385). This hsp70, isolated by affinity chromatography with RNase S-peptide-Sepharose, is referred to as the 73-kDa peptide(More)
When glucose-starved cells are replenished with glucose, the key gluconeogenic enzyme, fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBPase), is selectively targeted from the cytosol to the yeast lysosome (vacuole) for degradation. The glucose-induced targeting of FBPase to the vacuole for degradation occurs in cells grown under a variety of metabolic conditions.(More)
The key gluconeogenic enzyme fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBPase) is subjected to catabolite inactivation and degradation when glucose-starved cells are replenished with fresh glucose. In various studies, the proteasome and the vacuole have each been reported to be the major site of FBPase degradation. Because different growth conditions were used in these(More)
Protein phosphatases play an important role in vesicular trafficking and membrane fusion processes. The type 1 phosphatase Glc7p and its regulatory subunit Reg1p were identified as required components in the glucose-induced targeting of the key gluconeogenic enzyme fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBPase) to the vacuole for degradation. The interaction of Reg1p(More)
In response to serum withdrawal, when overall rates of proteolysis increase in cultured fibroblasts, proteins containing peptide regions similar to Lys-Phe-Gln-Arg-Gln (KFERQ) are targeted to lysosomes for degradation, and the intracellular concentrations of these proteins decline [Chiang & Dice (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 6797-6805]. To test whether such(More)
Fibroblasts increase the catabolism of certain intracellular proteins in response to serum withdrawal, and these proteins contain specific peptide regions that may be required for their increased degradation. We show that the increased degradation of microinjected ribonuclease A during serum withdrawal can be blocked by co-injection of a pentapeptide(More)
