    ..However, rDNA escaped from nucleophagic degradation in CLIP- or cohibin-deficient cells. This study reveals that rDNA-nucleolar protein separation is important for the nucleophagic degradation of nucleolar proteins. ..

    ..Finally, mtPQC modulated the mtHSP genes SSC1 and MDJ1 via HSF, and SSC1 overexpression compromised mitochondrial function. These findings illustrate a model in which HSF directly monitors mtPQC. ..

    ..Thus, the positive feedback promotes mitotic exit via the APC/C-Cdh1-separase-Cdc14 axis. This study shows the importance of the two-step degradation mode of securin and the role of separase in mitotic exit. ..
