Jia et al. show that Galectin-3 recruits ESCRT components to damaged lysosomes for repair and restoration of their function. During sustained lysosomal injury, galectins induce autophagy and lysosomal biogenesis for a staged repair, removal, and replacement program. This response is deployed during damage with neurotoxic tau or Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.
