NODA Takeshi, associate professor

Autophagy is large scale cellular degradation induced in response to starvation. In addition, in recent years, autophagy has been clarified that it is involved in various physiological responses including the ability to defend against infection.

The most characteristic point in the degradation mechanism is a process in which double membrane-bound spherical structures called autophagosomes to form a structure to select stroma to be degraded.

In this lecture, our perceptions, based on our observations in recent years regarding the cellular mechanisms initiating autophagosome formation and termination will be introduced.
