Beclin 1, also named Atg6, is highly conserved in eukaryotes and belongs to theautophagy-related (Atg) family of proteins. Beclin 1 is a well-established regulator of autophagy, a process essential for mammalian survival. Beclin 1 performs both of its autophagy and membrane trafficking functions by interacting with several other proteins—primarily vacuolar protein sorting-associated protein 15 (VPS15), VPS34, UV radiation resistance-associated gene product (UVRAG), and autophagy-related protein 14 (ATG14). Together, these assemble into two different Class III PI3K complexes, Complex 1 (C1) and Complex 2 (C2), depending on whether ATG14 or UVRAG respectively is present. Within these complexes, the catalytic lipid kinase subunit, VSP34, is responsible for the phosphorylation of PtdIns, which then mediates autophagy and/or membrane trafficking functions through the recruitment of effector proteins.

    Chloramphenicol is an orally active, potent and broad-spectrum antibiotic. Chloramphenicol shows antibacterial activity. Chloramphenicol represses the oxygen-labile transcription factor and hypoxia inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1α) in hypoxic A549 and H1299 cells. Chloramphenicol suppresses the mRNA levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and glucose transporter 1, eventually decreasing VEGF release. Chloramphenicol can be used for anaerobic infections and lung cancer research.

    Apostatin-1 (Apt-1) is a potent TRADD inhibitor. Apostatin-1 can bind with TRADD-N (KD=2.17 μM), disrupting its binding to both TRADD-C and TRAF2. Apostatin-1 modulates the ubiquitination of RIPK1 and beclin 1. Apostatin-1 blocks apoptosis and restores cellular homeostasis by activating autophagy in cells with accumulated mutant tau, α-synuclein, or huntingtin.
