Although autophagy fails to degrade large protein aggregates once they are formed in the cytoplasm, drug-induced activation of autophagy is effective in preventing aggregate deposition, indicating that autophagy significantly contributes to the clearance of aggregate-prone proteins. The pivotal role of autophagy in the clearance of aggregate-prone proteins has been confirmed by a deductive approach using a brain-specific autophagy-ablated mouse model.
