Cellular-stress induced activation of non-TFEB regulated lysosomal genes

Cellular stress-induced transactivation of autophagy and lysosomal genes. In normal conditions, transcription factor EB (TFEB) is kept in the cytoplasm in an inactive form.

Honours project: Investigate the role of the eIF2α/ATF4 pathway in stress-induced transcription of non-TFEB genes.
