autophagic vacuole maturation Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process in which autophagic vacuoles (also called autophagosomes), double-membraned vacuoles containing cytoplasmic material, undergo a stepwise maturation. The process includes fusion with both endosomal and lysosomal vesicles providing an acidic environment and digestive function to the interior of the autophagic vacuole. (Gene Ontology, GO_0097352)
