Plants "Eat Themselves" to Resist Drought: Research[Aug 15, 2019]

A protein in some plants can promote autophagic degradation under drought stress to help improve drought tolerance of the plants, Chinese scientists have found. Dehydrin is a multi-family of proteins present in plants that is produced in response to cold and drought stress. The research result has been published in the journal Autophagy.
