Biological Function of Autophagy (1)

Autophagy is oxygen-dependent. Oxidative phosphorylation links the Creation of sunlight and water to the ATP-dependent creation of RNA and to biophysically constrained RNA interference, which protects organized genomes from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. Hypoxia causes the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. See: Dependence of RNA synthesis in isolated thymus nuclei on glycolysis, oxidative Biological Function of Autophagy (1)
