Autophagy and autophagy-related proteins in the immune system


Shibutani, Shusaku T; Saitoh, Tatsuya; Nowag, Heike; Münz, Christian; Yoshimori, Tamotsu (2015). Autophagy and autophagy-related proteins in the immune system. Nature Immunology, 16(10):1014-1024.

Abstract

Autophagy is an intracellular bulk degradation system that is highly conserved in eukaryotes. The discovery of autophagy-related ('ATG') proteins in the 1990s greatly advanced the mechanistic understanding of autophagy and clarified the fact that autophagy serves important roles in various biological processes. In addition, studies have revealed other roles for the autophagic machinery beyond autophagy. In this Review, we introduce advances in the knowledge of the roles of autophagy and its components in immunity, including innate immunity, inflammatory responses and adaptive immunity.
