Autophagy regulates lipid metabolism
The intracellular storage and utilization of lipids are critical to maintain cellular energy homeostasis. During nutrient deprivation, cellular lipids stored as triglycerides in lipid droplets areExpand

Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition)
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 theExpand

HDAC6 controls autophagosome maturation essential for ubiquitin‐selective quality‐control autophagy
Autophagy is primarily considered a non‐selective degradation process induced by starvation. Nutrient‐independent basal autophagy, in contrast, imposes intracellular QC by selective disposal ofExpand

Chaperone-mediated autophagy: a unique way to enter the lysosome world.
All cellular proteins undergo continuous synthesis and degradation. This permanent renewal is necessary to maintain a functional proteome and to allow rapid changes in levels of specific proteinsExpand

Consequences of the selective blockage of chaperone-mediated autophagy.
Chaperone-mediated autophagy (CMA) is a selective pathway for the degradation of cytosolic proteins in lysosomes. CMA declines with age because of a decrease in the levels of lysosome-associatedExpand

Microautophagy of cytosolic proteins by late endosomes.
Autophagy delivers cytosolic components to lysosomes for their degradation. The delivery of autophagic cargo to late endosomes for complete or partial degradation has also been described. In thisExpand

The Chaperone-Mediated Autophagy Receptor Organizes in Dynamic Protein Complexes at the Lysosomal Membrane
ABSTRACT Chaperone-mediated autophagy (CMA) is a selective type of autophagy by which specific cytosolic proteins are sent to lysosomes for degradation. Substrate proteins bind to the lysosomalExpand

Dopamine-modified alpha-synuclein blocks chaperone-mediated autophagy.
Altered degradation of alpha-synuclein (alpha-syn) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson disease (PD). We have shown that alpha-syn can be degraded via chaperone-mediated autophagyExpand

Tau fragmentation, aggregation and clearance: the dual role of lysosomal processing.
Aggregation and cleavage are two hallmarks of Tau pathology in Alzheimer disease (AD), and abnormal fragmentation of Tau is thought to contribute to the nucleation of Tau paired helical filaments.Expand
