Patty's paper in Nature Microbiology examines how autophagy proteins suppress protective type I interferon signalling in response to the murine gut microbiota. 


This manuscript explains how autophagy prevents a spontaneous IFN-I response to microbiota that is beneficial in the presence of infectious and non-infectious intestinal hazards. Overall, this work identifies a novel role for autophagy proteins in controlling the magnitude of IFN-I signalling at the intestinal barrier.
