Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition)
In 2008 we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, research on this topic has continued to accelerate, and many new scientists have entered theExpand

Identification of Multivesicular Bodies as Prevacuolar Compartments in Nicotiana tabacum BY-2 Cells Online version contains Web-only data.
Little is known about the dynamics and molecular components of plant prevacuolar compartments (PVCs). We have demonstrated recently that vacuolar sorting receptor (VSR) proteins are concentrated onExpand

Rha1, an Arabidopsis Rab5 Homolog, Plays a Critical Role in the Vacuolar Trafficking of Soluble Cargo Proteins Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at
Rab proteins are members of the Ras superfamily of small GTP binding proteins and play important roles in various intracellular trafficking steps. We investigated the role of Rha1, an ArabidopsisExpand

Rice SCAMP1 Defines Clathrin-Coated, trans-Golgi–Located Tubular-Vesicular Structures as an Early Endosome in Tobacco BY-2 Cells[W][OA]
We recently identified multivesicular bodies (MVBs) as prevacuolar compartments (PVCs) in the secretory and endocytic pathways to the lytic vacuole in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) BY-2 cells.Expand

Molecular Cloning and Further Characterization of a Probable Plant Vacuolar Sorting Receptor
BP-80 is a type I integral membrane protein abundant in pea (Pisum sativum) clathrin-coated vesicles (CCVs) that binds with high affinity to vacuole-targeting determinants containingExpand

Plant Retromer, Localized to the Prevacuolar Compartment and Microvesicles in Arabidopsis, May Interact with Vacuolar Sorting Receptors[W]
Receptors for acid hydrolases destined for the lytic compartment in yeast and mammalian cells are retrieved from intermediate, endosomal organelles with the help of a pentameric protein complexExpand

Organelle pH in the Arabidopsis endomembrane system.
The pH of intracellular compartments is essential for the viability of cells. Despite its relevance, little is known about the pH of these compartments. To measure pH in vivo, we have first generatedExpand

Wortmannin induces homotypic fusion of plant prevacuolar compartments*
Wortmannin, a specific inhibitor of phosphatidyl-inositol 3-kinase, is a useful tool for studying protein trafficking and identifying organelles in the plant secretory and endocytic pathways. It hasExpand

PROTEIN S-ACYL TRANSFERASE10 Is Critical for Development and Salt Tolerance in Arabidopsis[W]
S-acylation or palmitoylation, catalyzed by protein S-acyl transferases (PATs), regulates protein targeting and function. This work shows that Arabidopsis PAT10 regulates pleiotropic developmentalExpand
