In order to examine the effect of scopoletin on induction of autophagy, monodansylcadaverine (MDC), a fluorescent compound that is incorporated into multilamellar bodies by both an ion trapping mechanism and the interaction with membrane lipids, as a probe for detection of autophagic vacuoles was used to detect autophagy in the cells treated with scopoletin.
EAL dysfunction is characterized by progressive accumulation of autophagic vacuoles (AVs) and enlargement of endosomes.
During autophagy, however, lysosomes fuse with autophagic vacuoles, resulting in an increase in the intensity and size of Lamp2 fluorescent puncta (Fig.
PSO induced autophagy as evidenced by the accumulation of autophagic vacuoles and alterations of autophagic protein expression.
c)-(d) Electron microscopic imaging revealed higher population of autophagic vacuoles engulfing mitochondria (indicated by arrows) in MDA-MB-231 (d) than in MCF-10A (c) cells.
Endoplasmic reticulum, a small Golgi complex and some large cytoplasmic vacuoles were found, which possibly represent autophagic vacuoles, as suggested by the membranous whorls within the vacuoles (Figure 3B and D).
Large autophagic vacuoles may not be visible on biopsy unless the patient has been treated with the drug for at least 6 months.

Several muscle fibers contained rimmed or autophagic vacuoles (Figure 2).
LC3-II/LC3-I staining, which marks the formation of autophagic vacuoles,[sup][21] is also elevated progressively with rat age.
