    Mechanism of cargo-directed Atg8 conjugation during selective autophagy

    Dorotea Fracchiolla et al.
    Autophagic cargo receptors recruit the E3-like enzyme for Atg8 lipid conjugation to the cargo and thereby promote local formation of Atg8-positive autophagosomal membranes.

    Oligomerization of p62 allows for selection of ubiquitinated cargo and isolation membrane during selective autophagy

    Bettina Wurzer et al.
    Oligomerization of p62/SQSTM1 generates high avidity binding regions that enable it to spatially select for concentrated ubiquitin and ATG8-family proteins.

    Host autophagy machinery is diverted to the pathogen interface to mediate focal defense responses against the Irish potato famine pathogen

    Yasin F Dagdas et al.
    Defense-related selective autophagy mediated by the antimicrobial autophagy cargo receptor NBR1/Joka2 is diverted to pathogen penetration sites to restrict plant colonization by the oomycete pathogen Phytophthora infestans.

    Wiskott Aldrich syndrome protein regulates non-selective autophagy and mitochondrial homeostasis in human myeloid cells

    Elizabeth Rivers et al.
    WASp is an immunometabolic regulator of human myeloid cells and regulates autophagy and mitochondrial homeostasis.

    Atg43 tethers isolation membranes to mitochondria to promote starvation-induced mitophagy in fission yeast

    Tomoyuki Fukuda et al.
    Atg43 serves as a selective autophagy receptor by tethering isolation membranes to mitochondria to promote mitophagy and plays a mitophagy-independent role that facilitates normal cell growth in fission yeast.

    Autophagy linked FYVE (Alfy/WDFY3) is required for establishing neuronal connectivity in the mammalian brain

    Joanna M Dragich et al.
    Loss of function of the selective autophagy adaptor protein Alfy/Wdfy3 leads to profound wiring defects from the forebrain through to the spinal cord, highlighting the growing importance for macroautophagy in the developing brain.

    Meta-Research: COVID-19 research risks ignoring important host genes due to pre-established research patterns

    Thomas Stoeger, Luís A Nunes Amaral
    An analysis of 10,395 research publications about COVID-19 that mention at least one human gene reveals that many genes implicated in SARS-CoV-2 infection by genome-wide studies remain unstudied.
