Analyzing autophagy in clinical tissues of lung and vascular diseases.


Autophagy, a process by which organelles and cellular proteins are encapsulated in double-membrane vesicles and subsequently degraded by lysosomes, plays a central role in cellular and tissue homeostasis. In various model systems, autophagy may be triggered by nutrient deprivation, oxidative stress, and other insults such as endoplasmic reticulum stress… (More)
