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. AUTOPHAGIC LYSOSOME REFORMATION Following degradation of engulfed substrates with lysosomal hydrolytic enzymes and release of the resulting molecules (amino acids, fatty acids, monosaccharides, nucleotides), autophagic lysosome reformation (ALR) occurs.

For example, deficits in protein clearance in brain cells because of dysfunctional autophagy may lead to dementia. Autophagy can also promote cell death through excessive self-digestion and degradation of essential cellular constituents. Humans and other mammals with long lifespans unfortunately have to face the problem of the accumulation of somatic mutations over time. Although most of the mutations are benign and only some lead to disease, there are too many of them. Cancer is one of these major diseases, and is caused by a combination of somatic genetic alterations in a single cell, followed by uncontrolled cell growth and proliferation.

Although autophagy is maintained at very low levels in normal mammalian cells, it can be rapidly induced within minutes upon starvation or invasion by intracellular pathogens. ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM STRESS AND AUTOPHAGY All eukaryotic cells contain an endoplasmic reticulum (ER), and its highly convoluted single membrane typically constitutes more than half of the total membrane system of the cell. Ribosomes are attached to the surface of the rough ER membranes, but ribosomes are also found free in the cytosol.
