Molecular Mechanism of Multivesicular Body Biogenesis by ESCRT Complexes
When internalized receptors and other cargo are destined for lysosomal degradation, they are ubiquitinated and sorted by the endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) complexes 0, I,Expand

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

Membrane scission by the ESCRT-III complex
The endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) system is essential for multivesicular body biogenesis, in which cargo sorting is coupled to the invagination and scission of intralumenalExpand

Autophagy
In 1955, the biologist and Nobel Prize laureate Christian de Duve discovered that cells possess specialized organelles filled with hydrolytic enzymes and he called these organelles lysosomes. At theExpand

Scaffolding the expansion of autophagosomes
The conjugation of the small ubiquitin (Ub)-like protein Atg8 to autophagic membranes is a key step during the expansion of phagophores. This reaction is driven by 2 interconnected Ub-likeExpand

Reconstituting multivesicular body biogenesis with purified components.
Activated cell surface receptors are rapidly removed from the plasma membrane through clathrin mediated endocytosis and transported to the endosome where they are either recycled or sorted to theExpand

Autophagy in the test tube: In vitro reconstitution of aspects of autophagosome biogenesis
Autophagy is a versatile recycling pathway that delivers cytoplasmic contents to lysosomal compartments for degradation. It involves the formation of a cup‐shaped membrane that expands to captureExpand

Passing membranes to autophagy: Unconventional membrane tethering by Atg17
ABSTRACT Macroautophagy delivers cytoplasmic material to lysosomal/vacuolar compartments for degradation. Conserved multisubunit complexes, composed of autophagy-related (Atg) proteins, initiate theExpand

Digesting cytotoxic stressors – an unconventional mechanism to induce autophagy
Autophagy is an essential and fundamental pathway that clears unwanted or damaged material from the cell. Initiation of autophagy was previously shown to be dependent on the Ulk1/2 kinase complex. InExpand
