Mitochondrial dynamics: A strategy for avoiding autophagy Academic Article uri icon

Overview

MeSH Major

  • Autophagy
  • Mitochondria

abstract

  • Cells normally respond to a lack of nutrients by activating autophagy, a prominent pro-survival pathway that involves the catabolism and recycling of cytoplasmic material. Recent results indicate that mitochondria actively elongate during autophagy, thereby avoiding their degradation and sustaining cell viability.
