Figure 3: The autophagy steps. The autophagy process contains several steps: Initiation, elongation, fusion, and degradation. It starts with formation of the isolation membrane, the phagophore, which extends and surrounds the cargo, forming the autophagosome with the cargo inside. Autophagosome unites with the lysosome leading to formation of the phagolysosome and the lysosomal enzymes start to digest the components.
