Autophagy is an intracellular process for vacuolar bulk degradation of cytoplasmic components. The molecular machinery responsible for yeast and mammalian autophagy has recently begun to be elucidated at the cellular level, but the role that autophagy plays at the organismal level has yet to be determined. In this study, a genome-wide search revealed significant conservation between yeast and plant autophagy genes. Twenty-five plant genes that are homologous to 12 yeast genes essential for… CONTINUE READING
