Autophagosomes in the cell

B2_7_z0_rgb.jpg

Autophagosomes play a crucial role in recycling, by degrading cellular components and providing building blocks for renewal och cell components. Last year, we published a post about autophagy, which was the subject of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine.

We show, for the first time, images of HPA antibodies that co-localize with the autophagosomes. These membrane bound vesicles are involved in degradation of cellular constituents through a process called autophagy. The protein detected is localized to the autophagosomes (green) in SH-SY5Y cells, a human neuroblastoma cell line from neural tissue...Read more

The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) jointly organize the first international conference on cell biology of brain. The ASCB/EMBO meeting takes place in Philadelphia on the 2-4 of December 2017.

The conference brings together a program covering presentations from molecular structure and function analysis to signalling pathways, immunity and cellular interplay in organoids.

At the meeting, Dr. Emma Lundberg presents "What is an atlas and why is it important to build?" in a subgroup aiming to discuss the creation of a multiscale, multidimensional Human Cell Atlas...Read more
