High impact information on ATG17

  • In contrast, the ATG17 gene is required specifically in autophagy [1].
  • A point mutant of Atg17, Atg17(C24R), showed reduced affinity for Atg13, resulting in impaired Atg1 kinase activity and significant defects in autophagy [1].
  • Our mapping shows that the Atg11 coiled-coil domains are involved in self-assembly and the interaction with other proteins, including two previously unidentified partners, Atg17 and Atg20 [2].
  • Here, we identify Cis1/Atg31 as a protein that exhibits similar phenotypes to Atg17 [3].
  • Genome wide analyses have shown that Atg17 interacts with numerous proteins [3].
