PINBOARD SUMMARY

Autophagy process is critical in presenting environmental allergens to inflammatory cells.

Thunderstorms have been recognized worldwide as one of the major precipitant of environmental change induced asthma. Thunderstorm causes unusually high pollen in the air triggering severe asthma attacks.. Recent understanding of Autophagy and its role in immunology has opened avenue for its research in asthma drug development. More specifically, autophagy process regulation is noticed in nuclear and cytoplasmic antigen delivery to cell surface (MHC class II molecules) for presentation to inflammatory cells (CD4+ T cells). My project aimed to explore the role of autophagy in severe asthma and its therapeutic potential using autophagy inhibitor.
