Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy in higher eukaryotes
A set of guidelines for the selection and interpretation of the methods that can be used by investigators who are attempting to examine macroautophagy and related processes, as well as by reviewers who need to provide realistic and reasonable critiques of papers that investigate these processes are presented.
A unified nomenclature for yeast autophagy-related genes.

Northern blot analysis results and growth properties of a disrupted mutant indicate that Adh1 plays a major role in propane metabolism, and it is concluded that Gordonia sp.
Modification of a ubiquitin-like protein Paz2 conducted micropexophagy through formation of a novel membrane structure.
It is shown that Paz2 and its modification system conduct micro Apexophagy through formation of the membrane structure, which explains the convergence between micropexophagy and macroautophagy with regard to de novo membrane formation.
PI4P-signaling pathway for the synthesis of a nascent membrane structure in selective autophagy

It was confirmed that the genus Magnetospirillum represents the third genus of denitrifying bacteria capable of degrading aromatic compounds under anaerobic conditions, besides the genera Thauera and Azoarcus.
Aerobic and Anaerobic Toluene Degradation by a Newly Isolated Denitrifying Bacterium, Thauera sp. Strain DNT-1

It is concluded that strain DNT-1 modulates the expression of two different initial pathways of toluene degradation according to the availability of oxygen in the environment.
Gene Structures and Regulation of the Alkane Hydroxylase Complex in Acinetobacter sp. Strain M-1
Two alkane hydroxylase complexes are switched by controlling the expression of twon-alkane hydoxylase-encoding genes in response to the chain length of n-alkanes, while rubredoxin and rubred toxin ruductase are encoded by a single gene and expressed constitutively.
Peroxisome Degradation by Microautophagy in Pichia pastoris: Identification of Specific Steps and Morphological Intermediates
- Y. Sakai, A. Koller, L. Rangell, G. Keller, S. Subramani
- BiologyThe Journal of cell biology

These studies indicate that the microautophagic degradation of peroxisomes proceeds via specific intermediates, whose generation and/or processing is controlled by PAG gene products, and shed light on the poorly understood phenomenon of per oxisome homeostasis.
