Korean researchers have identified the inhibition of autophagy in microglia, brain immune cells. It is expected to help develop treatments for Alzheimer’s diseases which occur due to the inhibition of autophagy.
Plants overcome hunger with the aid of autophagy
12 Mar 2018
Researchers at Tohoku University have found that plants activate autophagy in their leaf cells to derive amino acids that are used for survival under energy-starved “hunger” conditions. The findings show that amino acid utilization in plants can be controlled by the manipulation of autophagy.
