Autophagy is a critical quality control pathway that is conserved across diverse systems ranging from simple unicellular organisms like yeast to more complex systems, for instance mammals. Although, the fundamental role of autophagy is to maintain cellular quality control through lysosomal degradation of unwanted proteins and organelles, recent studies have mapped several new functions of this pathway that range from fuel utilization, cellular differentiation to protection against cell death… CONTINUE READING
