MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Autophagy is the process by which endogenous proteins and damaged organelles are destroyed intracellularly. Autophagy is postulated to be essential for cell homeostasis and cell remodeling during differentiation, metamorphosis, non-apoptotic cell death, and aging. Reduced levels of autophagy have been described in some malignant tumors, and a role for autophagy in controlling the unregulated cell growth linked to cancer has been proposed. This gene encodes a member of the autophagin protein family. The encoded protein is also designated as a member of the C-54 family of cysteine proteases. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding the same protein, have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele show a higher incidence of chemically-induced fibrosarcomas, and exhibit both a significant reduction of autophagic activity in the diaphragm muscle as well as decreased locomotor activity after prolonged starvation. [provided by MGI curators]
