      Autophagy is a fundamental eukaryotic homeostatic pathway that affects innate and adaptive immunity. Autophagic responses are integrated with Cited by:   Thus, both ‘immune-specific’ and more general nutrient-response signals control autophagy in response to infection. Studies with vitamin D3 have uncovered a possible link between nutrition, innate immunity and the control of autophagy during mycobacterial infection.

    This book is an asset to newcomers as a concise overview of the regulation of autophagy, its role in host defense and immunity, and selective autophagy, while serving as an excellent reference for more experienced scientists and clinicians looking to update their knowledge.   The NOOK Book (eBook) of the Autophagy: Cancer, Other Pathologies, Inflammation, Immunity, Infection, and Aging: Volume 1 - Molecular Mechanisms by M.

    Introduction: autophagy in infection. Macroautophagy, or sensu stricto autophagy, is a cytoplasmic quality and quantity control process whereby cytoplasmic components are sequestered into double membrane organelles termed autophagosomes and delivered for degradation and elimination to lysosomes (Fig. 1).The scope of autophagy (and its associated processes of chaperone-mediated-autophagy Cited by: Autophagy: Cancer, Other Pathologies, Inflammation, Immunity, Infection, and Aging is a complete, authoritative examination of the role of autophagy in health and disease. Understanding this phenomenon is vital for the studies of cancer, aging, neurodegeneration, immunology, .

Following a comprehensive introduction to autophagy, the work features cellular mechanisms and medical implications, structured according to all major pathogens, while also covering emerging infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis.

Edited by one of the authors of a groundbreaking paper on this topic. The relationship between infection and immunity and autophagy, a pathway of cellular homeostasis and stress response, has been a rapidly growing field of study over the last decade.

While some cellular processes are pro- or anti-infection, autophagy has been proven to be both: a part of the innate immune response against some microbes, and a Format: Hardcover. Considering that autophagy is associated with numerous biological processes including cellular development and differentiation, cancer (both antitumor and protumor functions), immunity, infectious diseases, inflammation, maintenance of homeostasis, response to cellular stress, and degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, /5(2).

Autophagy: Cancer, Other Pathologies, Inflammation, Immunity, Infection, and Aging is an eleven volume series that discusses in detail all aspects of autophagy machinery in the context of health, cancer, and other pathologies.
