Sample text

Autophagy plays a constitutive and basally active role in the quality control of proteins and organelles, and is associated with either cell survival or cell death. Stress-responsive autophagy can enable adaptation and promote cell survival, whereas in certain models, autophagy has also been associated with cell death, representing either a failed attempt at survival or a mechanism that supports cell and tissue degradation. Autophagy prevents the accumulation of random molecular damage in long-lived structures, particularly mitochondria, and more generally provides a means to reallocate cellular resources from one biochemical pathway to another.

Microautophagy Microautophagy is the direct uptake of soluble or particulate cellular constituents into lysosomes. It translocates cytoplasmic substances into the lysosomes for degradation via direct invagination, protrusion, or septation of the lysosomal limiting membrane. In other words, microautophagy involves direct invagination and fusion of the vacuolar/lysosomal membrane under nutrient limitation. The limiting/sequestering membrane is the lysosomal membrane, which invaginates to form tubules that pinch off into the lysosomal lumen.

In contrast, TRL3 signaling induces antitumor effects. , 2008). The implication is that Akt inactivation increases the susceptibility of cancer cells to immune surveillance. , 2007). Activation of the TLR downstream signaling proteins MyD88 and Trif appears to be involved in the induction of autophagy. These proteins are recruited together with Beclin 1 to TLR4, which promotes the dissociation of the Beclin 1–Bc12 complex and induces autophagosome formation (Shi and Kehri, 2008). MyD88 and Trif target Beclin 1 to trigger autophagy in macrophages.
