Sample text

In mammalian cells, the key upstream kinase that regulates the induction of most forms of autophagy is the Atg1 homologue ULK1, which forms a complex with Atg13, Fip200, and Atg101. Among the Atg proteins, Atg9 is the only multispanning membrane protein essential for autophagosome formation. It needs to be noted that autophagy proteins are also involved in non-autophagic functions such as cell survival, apoptosis, modulation of cellular traffic, protein secretion, AUTOPHAGY 10 1. INTRODUCTION TO AUTOPHAGY cell signaling, transcription, translation, and membrane reorganization (Subramani and Malhotra, 2013).

During starvation, intracellular mTOR is inhibited before autophagy can occur, but it is reactivated after prolonged starvation, and the timing of this reactivation is correlated with the initiation of ALR and termination of autophagy (Chen and Yu, 2012). Thus, mTOR reactivation is required for ALR. ALR is blocked when mTOR is inhibited, and mTOR reactivation is linked to lysosomal degradation. , 2011); these transporters are lysosomal membrane proteins that export lysosomal degradation products.

2011). The sequestration of damaged mitochondria depends on Parkin, which averts the propagation of ROS-induced ROS release and cell death. The implication is that mitochondrial depolarization and removal through mitophagy is cardioprotective. The sequestration of damaged cell materials into autophagosomes is essential for cardioprotection. , 2007). Recently, Gottlieb and Mentzer (2013) have ably reconciled contradictory findings and concluded that the preponderance of evidence leans towards a beneficial role of autophagy in the heart under most conditions.
