AbstractAutophagosomes are unique double-membrane organelles that enclose a portion of intracellular components for lysosome/vacuole delivery to maintain cellular homeostasis in eukaryotic cells. Genetic screening has revealed the requirement of autophagy-related proteins for autophagosome formation, although the origin of the autophagosome membrane remains elusive. The endomembrane system is a series of membranous organelles maintained by dynamic membrane flow between various compartments. In plants, there is accumulating evidence pointing to a link between autophagy and the endomembrane system, in particular between the endoplasmic reticulum and autophagosome. Here, we highlight and discuss about recent findings on plant autophagosome formation. We also look into the functional roles of endomembrane machineries in regard to the autophagy pathway in plants.
