Autophagic degradation of leaf starch in plants.


Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved process in eukaryotic cells that functions to degrade cytoplasmic components in the vacuole or lysosome. Previous research indicates that the core molecular machinery of autophagosome formation works well in plants, and plant autophagy plays roles in diverse biological processes such as nutrient recycling… (More)
