De Novo Phospholipid Synthesis Promotes Efficient Autophagy

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


Autophagy is an intracellular membrane trafficking process responsible for recycling of macromolecules and organelles and overall cell survival under physiological and pathophysiological conditions.1 It is mediated by a distinct set of core autophagic factors termed ATGs together with general intracellular trafficking factors such as SNAREs, tethering complexes, etc. This adaptive process of formation of a de novo double-membrane organelle is induced under different metabolic and stress conditions, including nutrient deprivation, growth factor depletion, infection, and hypoxia.
