Autophagy is a stress reaction process by which eukaryotic cells internalize and degrade cytosol in a vacuole or lysosome and recycle the contents to where they are needed in the cell. The affect on autophagy genes Atg6 and Atg13 were examined in response to sucrose deprivation and increased salt concentration in the plant Arabidopsis thaliana. It was concluded that although these genes are always being expressed, they do not increase in expression in response to these stress conditions.
