Autophagy suppression decreases craniofacial bone mass

AoS. Autophagy suppression decreases craniofacial bone mass

Macroautophagy (hereafter autophagy) is the main intracellular degradation mechanism to maintain cellular homeostasis by degrading misfolded proteins, recycling dysfunctional organelles, and generating energy fuels under physiological and pathological conditions. Autophagy consists of two major steps: autophagosome formation,
