  • Like other organisms, plants rely on autophagy to recycle intracellular components needed for development, new growth and survival during nutrient stress. This ‘self eating’ is a catabolic process by which unwanted cytoplasmic materials and dysfunctional organelles are sequestered into vesicles and subsequently delivered to the vacuole for breakdown. The process is tightly regulated by the autophagy-related 1(ATG1)-ATG13 kinase complex which is controlled by multiple nutrient-responsive… CONTINUE READING
