High impact information on ATG2

  • We have identified and characterized a novel protein Apg2p essential for autophagy in yeast [1].
  • Apg2p localizes to some membranous structure distinct from any known organelle [1].
  • Apg2 localizes to the previously identified perivacuolar compartment that contains Apg9, the only characterized integral membrane protein that is required for autophagosome/Cvt vesicle formation [2].
  • In this study, we have identified a novel protein, termed Apg2, required for both the Cvt and autophagy pathways as well as the specific degradation of peroxisomes [2].
  • The majority of Cca1p-II and Cca1p-III, translated from ATG2 and ATG3, respectively, is in the cytosol but both are also located in the nucleus for processing precursors [3].
