Autophagy is one of the most exciting areas in biology. The 1st ISA was organized by Prof. Yoshinori Ohsumi in Okazaki (Japan) in 1997. Like previous ISAs, this symposium will cover a broad range of research topics in autophagy and over 30 prominent invited international speakers will present the latest progress in this exciting and quickly

Acylglycerol kinase (AGK) -triggered PTEN phosphorylation is a signaling downstream of TCR and is required for the establishment and maintenance of CD8+ T cell metabolic and functional fitness.


BRD4, one of Bromodomain and extra-terminal domain (BET) proteins that bind to acetylated histones and transcription factors (TFs) and control cell-type-specific transcriptional programs, promotes mitochondrial fission and thereby enables asymmetric division and prostate cancer stem cell self...
