Sample text

Autophagosome substrate selectivity can be conferred by interactions between LC3 and specific cargo receptors, including sequestosome-1 (SQSTM1 #p62) and a neighbor of BRCA1 (NBR1). , 2012). , 2012). This complex directly binds membranes. Membrane binding is mediated by Atg5, inhibited by Atg12, and activated by Atg16. All components of this complex are required for efficient promotion of Atg8 conjugation to phosphatidylethanolamine. However, this complex is able to tether (fasten) membranes independently of Atg8.

Owing to its essential role in the expansion step of autophagosome formation, LC3-II is regarded as the most reliable marker protein for autophagy. , 2007). Divergent roles of LC3 (or Beclin 1) in tumorigenesis have been reported. , 2008). , 2008). , 2010). These and other studies imply that the clinical impact of LC3 is associated with the tumor type, tissue context, and other factors. MONITORING AUTOPHAGY A number of methods are available to monitor autophagy; such monitoring can be accomplished by using electron microscopy, biochemical protocols, and detection of relevant protein modifications through SDS-PAGE and western blotting.

2012). In addition to these core Atg proteins, 16 other proteins are essential for certain pathways or in different species. An alternate abbreviated system of Atg proteins follows. Autophagic proteins generally function in four major groups: the Atg1 kinase complex, the VPS34 class III phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex, two ubiquitin-like conjugation systems involving Atg8 and Atg12, and a membrane-trafficking complex involving Atg9 (Florey and Overholtzer, 2012). In mammalian cells, the key upstream kinase that regulates the induction of most forms of autophagy is the Atg1 homologue ULK1, which forms a complex with Atg13, FIP200, and Atg101.
