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]
25233411 Data suggest that WIPI2b directly interacts with dimer of ATG16L1 (autophagy related 16-like 1) and this interaction is linked to production of phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate in endoplasmic reticulum triggered by autophagosome formation. [REVIEW]
24991767 WIPI-1 and WIPI-2 are functionally required in mediating the PI3P signal at the onset of autophagy in NB4 cells.
24954904 WIPI2b binds the membrane surrounding Salmonella and recruits the Atg12-5-16L1 complex, initiating LC3 conjugation, autophagosomal membrane formation, and engulfment of Salmonella.
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).
20505359 A role for WIPI2 in the progression of omegasomes into autophagosomes, is reported.
20505359 WIPI2 is a phosphatidylinsitol-3-phosphate binding protein required for starvation induced autophagy.
