Not all autophagy membranes are created equal.

During starvation, the cell recycles cytoplasmic material by sequestering it in double-membrane organelles, called autophagosomes, which eventually fuse with lysosomes. In this issue, Hailey et al. (2010) identify the outer membrane of mitochondria as a new source of autophagosomal membranes during starvation.
