|Issue Date:||Aug-2013||Citation:||Chua, C.E.L., Tang, B.L. (2013-08). Linking membrane dynamics and trafficking to autophagy and the unfolded protein response. Journal of Cellular Physiology 228 (8) : 1638-1640. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1002/jcp.24341||Abstract:||Cellular stressors typically induce two protective counter-responses-autophagy and the unfolded protein response (UPR). It is conceivable that these two endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane-based processes would intersect/interact somehow with the constitutive housekeeping process of exocytic membrane traffic from the ER. How exactly might this occur? Recent evidence indicates that a conserved Rab protein, Rab1/Ypt1p, has functional roles in UPR and autophagy. This molecular switch and its associated effectors may therefore serve to link up a network of cellular responses to stress through changes in membrane dynamics and protein turnover. The notion provides further explanations as to why elevation of Rab1/Ypt1p levels could counter the cytotoxicity of α-synuclein, and a similar mode of protection may well be at work against other stresses. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.||Source Title:||Journal of Cellular Physiology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/108450||ISSN:||00219541||DOI:||10.1002/jcp.24341|
