  • In eukaryotic cells, mitochondria express tags that enable them to be selectively engulfed by the autophagic machinery and delivered to the lysosome for degradation. This process is termed mitophagy. This review highlights the tremendous progress made in delineating the principles of mitophagy in yeast and metazoans and discusses some of the roles of mitophagy in cell homeostasis.
