Macroautophagy is a bulk degradation process induced by starvation in eukaryotic cells [PMID: 11689437]. In yeast, 15 autophagy (Apg) proteins coordinate the formation of autophagosomes. Apg14p and Vps30p/Apg6p, components of an autophagy-specific phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex, together with Apg9p and Apg16p, are required for localisation of Apg5p and Aut7p to a pre-autophagosome structure that functions in autophageosome formation [PMID: 11689437, PMID: 11157979]. Mutations in the Saccharomyces cerevisiae APG14 gene have been shown to cause defects in autophagy [PMID: 9712845].
