Abstract

Over the last decade, autophagy has emerged as one of the critical cellular systems that control homeostasis. Besides management of normal homeostatic processes, autophagy can also be induced by tissue damage stress or by rapidly progressing tumors. During tumor progression, autophagy mediates a cellular reaction to the changes inside and outside of cells, which leads to tumor adaptation. Even though the regulation of autophagy seems universal and is a well-described process, its dysregulation and role in glioma progression remain an important topic of investigation. In this review, we summarize recent evidence of autophagy regulation in brain tumor tissues and possible interconnection between signaling pathways that govern cellular responses. This perspective may help to assess the qualitative differences and various outcomes in response to autophagy stimulation.
