Lysosomal Transport in Health and Diseases
Conference Philippe Laudat / INSERM , Aix les Bains, France
24-28 September 2000

In all eucaryotic cells the lysosome, or vacuole in yeast, performs a priviliged role in the catabolism and recycling of intra- and extracellular material. There have been recent spectacular advances in our understanding of the mechanisms involved in lysosomal hydrolase and membrane protein targetting, and also of the mechanisms involved in the transport of exogenous and endogenous catabolites into the lysosome.
The objective of this conference will be to communicate current data on the biogenesis of lysosomes and autophagic vacuoles, the types of transport to the lysosome from the cell surface, Golgi apparatus, and cytosol, and also on the relationship between lysosomal function and other cellular catabolic systems. Special attention will be paid to the role of the lysosome in ageing and cell death.
