Autophagy: The 2016 Nobel Prize
Autophagy is now known to be a very important physiological process involved in the cellular response to stress and infection, and to play a role in development and aging. Defects in the autophagic pathway have been linked to cancer, Parkinson's disease and diabetes, as well as other genetic diseases.
FEBS Letters is proud to have had the honor of publishing the above-mentioned paper, as well as many other excellent articles by Prof. Ohsumi, and to have contributed to the dissemination of Nobel Prize-worthy science. In a gesture of recognition of this outstanding work, we have collected under this Virtual Issue all autophagy-related articles contributed to FEBS Letters by Prof. Ohsumi and his colleagues.
