Autophagy in C. elegans.


Autophagy is a ubiquitous cellular process responsible for the bulk degradation of cytoplasmic components through an autophagosomal-lysosomal pathway. Genetic screens, primarily in S. cerevisiae, have identified numerous genes that are essential for autophagy. Many of these genes have orthologs in higher eukaryotes, including C. elegans, Drosophila, and… (More)
