Ho(a)xing Autophagy to Regulate Development

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this issue of Developmental Cell, Banreti etal. (2014) demonstrate that canonical autophagy is inhibited in the Drosophila fat body by Hox transcriptional factors. This regulation involves repression of the Atg genes. Programmed developmental autophagy is thus under Hox control and may influence cell fate determination.
