1. Autophagy
  2. Autophagy


Autophagy is a lysosome-dependent degradative process that protects cancer cells from multiple stresses.

Autophagy, the sequestration of organelles and proteins in autophagic vesicles (AVs) and degradation of this cargo through lysosomal fusion, allows tumor cells to survive metabolic and therapeutic stresses. Therapy-induced autophagy is a key resistance mechanism to many anticancer agents, and autophagy levels are increased in most cancers. Chloroquine derivatives block autophagy by impairing lysosomal function.

Autophagy plays an emerging role in immune responses against intracellular pathogens and regulates distinct immunologic processes, important for the initiation of potent innate or adaptive immune responses.

Autophagy is important for the transport of cytoplasmic constituents such as damaged mitochondria and protein aggregates to lysosomes where they are degraded and recycled back into the cytoplasm.
