Structural biology of autophagy

Cells continuously synthesize proteins, reconstruct their organelles and cellular components, renew them and take up substances from outside. A cellular mechanism that counteracts and controls this on-going growth of organic matter is autophagy. This particular mechanism degrades everything that is no longer needed – and this includes pathogens as well. In this regard autophagy plays a central role in our immune response and the defence against infectious diseases. Here you can find out how our scientists are researching autophagy in order to fight against pathogens and infectious diseases.
