Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi deserves the Nobel Prize for his superlative discoveries for the better understanding of autophagy. He has successfully explained all mechanisms of autophagy and he has identified the different genes that involve complex cellular pathways. Autophagy is basically a self-eating process in which cell degrades its own structure to repair itself and restores the proper functions that are needed for normal activity of cells. This new discovery is really outstanding in understandin...
