HOW CELLS ‘EAT’ THEIR OWN FLUID COMPONENTS

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – WORCESTER (MASSACHUSETTS), ven 22 gennaio 2021 (Tokyo Institute of Technology) Autophagy is a fundamental cellular process by which cells capture and degrade their own dysfunctional or superfluous components for degradation and recycling. Recent research has revealed that phase separated droplets have a range of important functions in cells.......

GIVING CELLS AN APPETITE FOR VIRUSES

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – DALLAS (TEXAS), gio 17 dicembre 2020 A UT Southwestern study identified a gene used in the cellular recycling process called autophagy that rids cells of viruses. The above illustration breaks down the steps involved in this process. Credit: Angela Diehl DALLAS – Dec. 16, 2020 – A team......

CITRUS PEEL FLAVONOID NOBILETIN ALLEVIATES LIPOPOLYSACCHARIDE-INDUCED INFLAMMATION BY ACTIVATING IL-6/STAT3/FOXO3A-MEDIATED AUTOPHAGY

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – LONDON (UNITED KINGDOM), mer 16 dicembre 2020 Nobiletin, a polymethoxyflavone widely present in the peel of citrus fruits, has significant anti-inflammatory activity. Autophagy plays a critical role in maintaining cell homeostasis by promoting the degradation of intracellular structures in response to various stress. Recent research suggests the involvement......

AUTOPHAGY-DEFICIENT ARABIDOPSIS MUTANT ATG5, WHICH SHOWS ULTRAVIOLET-B SENSITIVITY, CANNOT REMOVE ULTRAVIOLET-B-INDUCED FRAGMENTED MITOCHONDRIA

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – LONDON (UNITED KINGDOM), sab 28 novembre 2020 Mitochondria damaged by ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B, 280–315 nm) are removed by mitophagy, a selective autophagic process. Recently, we demonstrated that autophagy-deficient Arabidopsis thaliana mutants exhibit a UV-B-sensitive phenotype like that of cyclobutane pyrimidine dimer (CPD)-specific photolyase (PHR1)-deficient mutants. To explore the......
