Protein Degradation in Vacuoles from Acer Pseudoplatanus L. Cells
In higher plants, intracellular protein breakdown is a fundamental process which has important implications in biochemical regulation, protein turnover (Davies, 1982) and physiological events such as germination (Mikola, 1983) or senescence (Thimann, 1980; Laurière, 1983). However, the mechanisms that control the degradation of proteins are still obscure even though the characterization of plant proteolytic enzymes, and particularly their intracellular location has been extensively studied.
