Deciphering the function of a novel autophagy adaptor

CFS1 is a novel autophagy adaptor in Arabidopsis, which mediates the formation of amphisome via interacting with the ESCRT-1 component VPS23.

Study of cell type-specific autophagy in Arabidopsis

How autophagy behaves differently in different types of plant cells is still unknown. In this project, I aim to study autophagy dynamics in different cell types of Arabidopsis thaliana.
