What is “Autophagy”?
Auto-phagy (from the Greek for self-eating). Cell degrades its dysfunctional proteins. The body can use the components for important chemical processes in the body. Autophagy’s main roles are:
– remove defective proteins
– prevent abnormal protein aggregate accumulation
– remove intracellular pathogens
Autophagy is controlled by certain genes and those genes are controlled by many things but primarily Insulin and amino acids (through mTOR pathway).
This makes sense, why would you need to break down cells to use for energy when you have a constant supply of energy!! You just keep accumulating crappy cells. You never clean up!
