Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag av avhandlingen/ Summary of the thesis

Planet earth can be a hostile place, where organisms of all sorts are in a constant fight for survival. Evolution has provided cells the ability to improve the quality of those survival mechanisms, arriving to very high complex networks that work coordinately to try to ensure the continuity of the species.

At a cellular level, eukaryote cells have developed a high degree of complexity in order to maintain their homeostasis. One of the mechanisms that the cells has to thrive is autophagy, which in Greek means “self-eating”. Cells are able to degrade their own components (eat themselves) in order to obtain energy in times of scarcity.

In this study, we have investigated the role of two proteins called TRIM27 and TRIM32 in this cellular mechanism.

Our findings suggest that both proteins are involved in autophagy and that they may mediate the regulation of this process, and thereby contribute to the healthiness of the cell.
