Example text

A very extensive update of the assays for monitoring autophagy has been presented by Klionsky et al. (2012), who strongly recommend the use of multiple assays to monitor autophagy, and present 17 methods of doing so. REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES (ROS) Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are highly reactive forms of molecular oxygen, including the superoxide anion radical, hydrogen peroxide, singlet oxygen, and hydroxyl radical AUTOPHAGY 16 1. , 2012). ROS are generally produced during normal metabolism of oxygen inside the mitochondrial matrix, which acts as their primary source.

Several cytosolic chaperones associated with the lysosomal membrane have been proposed, which assist in the unfolding (Aggarraberes and Dice, 2001). Translocation of the substrate requires the presence of a variant of Hsc70, lys-Hsc70, in the lysosomal lumen. This is followed by the rapid proteolysis of the substrate by residual lysosomal proteases (half-life of 5–10 minutes in the lysosomal lumen). AUTOPHAGOSOME FORMATION Autophagy is a highly complex process consisting 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.

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.
