25462558 The specific autophagosomal localization of both WIPI1 and WIPI2 (refered to as WIPI puncta) has been employed to assess autophagy using fluorescence microscopy methods, such as confocal and live-cell video microscopy
25233424 Data suggest WIPI1/WIPI2 co-localize with microtubule-associated light chain 3 and autophagy related proteins 2/14L, participate in biogenesis of phagosomes, autophagy, and mobilization of lipids to/from intracellular droplets. [review-like article]
24991767 WIPI-1 and WIPI-2 are functionally required in mediating the PI3P signal at the onset of autophagy in NB4 cells.
24384561 the detection of WIPI1 mRNA is likely to be a convenient method of monitoring autophagosome formation in a wide range of cell types
21564513 Freeze-fracture replica immunolabelling reveals WD-repeat protein interacting with phosphoinositides 1 and 2 (WIPI-1 and WIPI-2) as membrane components of autophagosomes and the plasma membrane (PM).
21317285 Studies define a distinct role for WIPI1 and TORC1 signaling in controlling the transcription of melanogenic enzymes and melanosome maturation, a process that is distinct from starvation-induced autophagy.
19936222 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
17618624 Quantification of WIPI-1 puncta should be suitable to assay mammalian autophagy
