Figure 1: Expression of autophagy proteins in vitiligo patients and controls: (a) Western blot protein bands, (b) Atg5 protein is significantly increased in active and stable vitiligo compared to active and stable perilesional skin, (c) LC3II/I is significantly increased in active and stable vitiligo compared to active and stable peri-vitiligo samples, (d) p62 is significantly decreased in active and stable vitiligo skin as well as stable vitiligo perilesional skin, and (e) mTOR is significantly decreased in active and stable vitiligo lesional skin (**P < 0.01, *P < 0.05; control, n = 6, active, n = 7 and stable vitiligo n = 9)
