Avermectin induced autophagy in pigeon spleen tissues.
Harbin, China. In Chem Biol Interact, Jan 2016
The expression of LC3, beclin-1, dynein, Atg4B and Atg5 increased, while mRNA levels of TORC1 and TORC2 were decreased in the AVM-treated groups relative to the control groups at 30, 60 and 90 days in the pigeon spleen.
Autophagy in the Degenerating Human Intervertebral Disc: In Vivo Molecular and Morphological Evidence, and Induction of Autophagy in Cultured Annulus Cells Exposed to Proinflammatory Cytokines-Implications for Disc Degeneration.
Charlotte, United States. In Spine (phila Pa 1976), Jul 2015
Immunolocalization and ultrastructural studies for p62, ATG3, ATG4B, ATG4C, ATG7, L3A, ULK-2, and beclin were conducted.
Histopathological and neurological features of Atg4b knockout mice.
The Woodlands, United States. In Vet Pathol, 2011
Genetic inactivation of mouse Atg4b resulted in amorphous globular bodies in the neuropil of the deep cerebellar nuclei and adjacent vestibular nuclei and a mild but measurable impairment of motor performance on the Rotarod.
A balancing act for autophagin.
San Diego, United States. In J Clin Invest, 2010
Mice lacking the protease autophagy-related 4B (Atg4b, also known as autophagin-1) exhibited a systemic reduction in autophagy and showed defects in the development of otoconia, organic particles that contain calcium carbonate crystals and proteins and that are essential for balance perception (equilibrioception) in mammals.
