Example text

The term autophagy (auto phagin, from the Greek meaning self-eating) refers to a phenomenon in which cytoplasmic components are delivered to the lysosomes for bulk or selective degradation under the lysosomes’ distinct intracellular and extracellular milieu. This term was first coined by de Duve over 46 years ago (Deter and de Duve, 1967), based on the observed degradation of mitochondria and other intracellular structures within lysosomes of rat liver perfused with the pancreatic hormone glucagon.

Aerobic glycolysis and glutaminolysis) are upregulated to provide needed energy and rebuild new complex macromolecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids. Autophagy has complex and paradoxical roles in antitumorigenesis, tumor progression, and cancer therapeutics. Initially, two principal lines of evidence connected autophagy and cancer: it was found that (1) the BECN1 gene is monoallelically deleted in several types of cancers, and (2) autophagy can function to promote tumor cell survival, but can also contribute to cell death.

It consists of sequential steps of induction of autophagy, formation of autophagosome precursor, formation of autophagosomes, fusion between autophagosome and lysosome, degradation of cargo contents, efflux transportation of degraded products to the cytoplasm, and lysosome reformation. This chapter discusses specific functions of autophagy, the process of autophagy, major types of autophagy, influences on autophagy, and the role of autophagy in disease, immunity, and defense. INTRODUCTION Aging cannot be stopped, but it can be delayed.
