High impact information on ATG4B

  • These results provide additional evidence that the autophagic process widely studied in yeast can also be fully reconstituted in human tissues and open the possibility to explore the relevance of the autophagin-based proteolytic system in the induction, regulation, and execution of autophagy [1].
