Abstract:Microautophagy is a mode of autophagy in which the lysosomal or vacuolar membrane invaginates and engulfs target components. Oku et al. show that, upon a diauxic shift, yeast microautophagy involves recruitment of ESCRT proteins to the vacuolar membrane, including clathrin-interacting Vps27, and uptake of lipid droplets by the vacuole.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
