Autophagy is an evolutionary conserved process of bulk degradation and nutrient sequestration that occurs in all eukaryotic cells. Yet, in recent years, autophagy has also been shown to play a role in the specific degradation of individual proteins or protein aggregates as well as of damaged organelles. The process was initially discovered in yeast and has also been very well studied in mammals and, to a lesser extent, in plants. In this review, we summarize what is known regarding the various… 
Overview of Autophagy in Plant Cells
TLDR
This general review describes genetic components of the core autophagic machinery conserved among yeast, animals, and plants and briefly explain how these components are responsible for major steps in plant autophagy.

The roles of autophagy in development and stress responses in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
The roles that autophagy-related genes (ATGs) family play in the lifecycle of the Arabidopsis are proved to be similar to that in mammal and could develop sophisticated mechanisms to survive when plants are suffering unfavorable environments.
Degradation of Organelles or Specific Organelle Components via Selective Autophagy in Plant Cells
TLDR
In plants, selective autophagy has recently been shown to degrade mitochondria, plastids and peroxisomes, or organelle components such as the endoplasmic-reticulum membrane and chloroplast-derived proteins such as Rubisco, placing selective-autophagy as a major factor in cellular steady-state maintenance, both under stress and favorable environmental conditions.

TLDR
The recent progress of research on the molecular mechanisms of plant autophagy, as well as its function under biotic stress and abiotic stress are reviewed.

Inhibition of Target of Rapamycin Signaling and Stress Activate Autophagy in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii1[W]
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the ATG8 protein from Chlamydomonas (CrATG8) is functionally conserved and may be used as a molecular autophagy marker and rapamycin-mediated inhibition of the Target of Rapamycin signaling pathway results in identical effects on CratG8 and a relocalization of this protein in ChlamYdomonAs cells similar to the one observed upon nutrient limitation.
