In relation to autophagy, ubiquitin has so far been ascribed as a signal for cargo degradation. Ubiquitination of aggregated prone proteins, as well as bacteria and mitochondria, serves as a signal for recognition by autophagy receptors like p62 and NRB1. However, the role in autophagy of the ubiquitin‐like proteins SUMO and Nedd is so far unexplored. A role in selective autophagy has recently been reported for protein acetylation. Histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6), initially identified as a mediator of the transport of misfolded proteins to the aggresome, is also implicated in the maturation of ubiquitin‐positive autophagosomes [142] and the Parkin‐mediated clearance of damaged mitochondria [143].

1 Exosome Secretion During Aging Although the study of exosomes in aging is still in its infancy, there is evidence that senescent cells undergo specific changes in exosome composition and trafficking [177]. Insufficient digestion of damaged molecules might promote the release of partially digested or undigested materials through exosomes. This is important, for example, during age‐related macular degeneration (AMD), where increased autophagy and the release of exosomes can contribute to the formation of drusen [178].

Calcium signaling also triggers exosome release in many cell types, including lymphocytes, neurons and oligodendrocytes [57]. Calcium entry through NMDA and AMPA receptors triggers oligodendroglial exosome secretion, which improves viability of the recipient neuronal cells upon exposure to conditions of cell stress [24]. Exosome release is also increased in stress situations, which are frequent in the tumor microenvironment and which cancer cells need to overcome to enable tumor progression. A number of studies indicate that hypoxia promotes exosome release in different tumor types [58].
