Autophagy receptors are important for protein homeostasis, by regulating the clearance of protein aggregates, pathogens and the turnover of a wide range of cargo proteins, via the autophagosome-lysosome pathway, by ubiquitin-dependent and -independent mechanisms [3]. Their activity is modulated by protein modifications such as phosphorylation and ubiquitination. Some autophagy receptors have been associated with neurodegenerative diseases [2,10].
