Pexophagy and peroxisomal protein turnover in plants
Peroxisomes are dynamic, vital organelles that sequester a variety of oxidative reactions and their toxic byproducts from the remainder of the cell. The oxidative nature of peroxisomal metabolism predisposes the organelle ...
Mutation of the Arabidopsis LON2 peroxisomal protease enhances pexophagy
(Landes Bioscience, 2014)
Peroxisomes are critical organelles housing various, often oxidative, reactions. Pexophagy, the process by which peroxisomes are selectively targeted for destruction via autophagy, is characterized in yeast and mammals but ...
