EMBO Workshop: Lysosomes and Metabolism

EMBO Workshop: Lysosomes and metabolism ( For many years, the lysosome or vacuole represented the cell’s waste-yard, where cargo delivered through autophagy pathways and from the late endosome is digested or recycled. However, compelling recent evidence suggests that the lysosome harbors a complex nutrient sensing machinery that regulates important cellular processes including autophagy, lysosomal biogenesis, …
