Autophagy is a catabolic process that results in the degradation of bulk cytoplasmic contents within autophagosomes and lysosomes. Two human Atg2 homologs (Atg2A, Atg2B) are critical for autophagosome formation as silencing of both results in the accumulation of unclosed autophagic structures. Starvation-induced autophagy targets Atg2A to the initiation site of autophagosome biogenesis, where it associates with DFCP1, WIPI-1, and other autophagy- related proteins. Atg2 proteins also function in lipid droplet metabolism as depletion of both Atg2A and AtgB results in changes in the size, number, and distribution of lipid droplets. An increase in Atg2A expression during etoposide- and doxorubicin-induced apoptosis suggests that Atg2A may be a useful indicator of topoisomerase II inhibitor-mediated apoptosis.
