In eukaryotic cells, autophagy mediates the degradation of cytosolic contents in response to environmental change. Genetic analyses in fungi have identified over 30 autophagy-related (ATG) genes and provide substantial insight into the molecular mechanism of this process. However, one essential issue that has not been resolved is the origin of the lipids(More)
Autophagy is a major intracellular degradative pathway that is involved in many human diseases. The molecular mechanism of autophagy has been elucidated largely through studies on autophagy-related (Atg) proteins. One difficulty in understanding the mechanism of autophagy has been the lack of functional motifs in most of the Atg proteins. In the absence of(More)
