          Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive memory loss due to aberrant accumulation of misfolded proteins inside and outside neurons and glial cells, leading to a loss of cellular protein homeostasis. Today, no therapy is available to block or slow down AD progression, and the mechanisms of the disease are not fully understood. Autophagy is an intracellular degradation pathway crucial to maintaining cellular homeostasis by clearing damaged organelles, pathogens, and unwanted protein aggregates.
