Autophagy is generally viewed as a survival mechanism that is important for balancing sources of energy at critical phases of development and in response to nutrient stress. Autophagy is also a “housekeeping” process in which misfolded or aggregated proteins, damaged organelles, and intracellular pathogens are removed from cells. The recent award of the Nobel Prize in Medicine to Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi celebrated Dr. Ohsumi’s decades of discoveries of the mechanisms of autophagy which we now understand are fundamental to preventing diseases such as cancer, neurodegeneration, cardiomyopathy, diabetes, liver disease, autoimmune diseases, and infections. QED Bioscience is pleased to offer a panel of highly-specific autophagy-associated antibodies including antibodies to Atg2A through Atg12 as well as Beclin 1 and 2 and UVRAG for autophagy research.
