Route to destruction: Autophagosomes SNARE lysosomes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

9 Scopus citations


Autophagy allows cells to encapsulate parts of their cytosol into unique double-membrane structures. These autophagosomes mature to fuse with lysosomes and deliver the enclosed contents for degradation. Three recent papers, including one by Takáts et al. (2013. J. Cell Biol., have taken different routes to discover a role for Syntaxin 17 in the maturation of autophagosomes.
