    The primary role of autophagy is adaption to starvation. However, increasing evidence suggests that autophagy inhibition also plays an important role in tumorigenesis. Upregulation of X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP) has been associated to a variety of human cancers, yet the underlying...

    Autophagy is a catabolic process responsible for the degradation and recycling of long-lived proteins and organelles by lysosomes. This degradative pathway sustains cell survival during nutrient deprivation, but in some circumstances, autophagy leads to cell death. Thereby, autophagy can serve...

  • Autophagy is essential for effector CD8+ T cell survival and memory formation. Xu, Xiaojin; Araki, Koichi; Li, Shuzhao; Han, Jin-Hwan; Ye, Lilin; Tan, Wendy G; Konieczny, Bogumila T; Bruinsma, Monique W; Martinez, Jennifer; Pearce, Erika L; Green, Douglas R; Jones, Dean P; Virgin, Herbert W; Ahmed, Rafi // Nature Immunology;Nov2014, Vol. 15 Issue 12, p1152 

    The importance of autophagy in the generation of memory CD8+ T cells in vivo is not well defined. We report here that autophagy was dynamically regulated in virus-specific CD8+ T cells during acute infection of mice with lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus. In contrast to the current paradigm,...
