  1. Examples of autophagy related gene expression in humans and common model organisms (mRNA and/or protein). For human, mouse, and rat genes the approved human gene symbol is used http://www.genenames.org, for D. melanogaster and C. elegans their respective gene symbols (if existent) are provided. (AllenB): Gene mRNA is detectable by hybridization as published in the Allen Brain Atlas http://www.brain-map.org; (WoBa): neuronal expression data available at WormBase http://www.wormbase.org; (n.a.): not available.
