    ..Vacuolar microautophagy, a process by which the vacuole directly engulf cytoplasmic material, also occurs in plants but its underlying molecular mechanisms are yet to be elucidated. ..

    ..We discuss here the use of FLIM as a tool for analyzing the subcellular distribution of anthocyanins and estimating variation in vacuolar pH in intact cells. ..

    ..We hypothesize that this novel microautophagy mechanism also mediates the transport of other flavonoid aggregates into the vacuole. ..

    ..Consistent with the compromised degradation of plastid proteins, chmp1 plastids show severe morphological defects and aberrant division. We propose that CHMP1 plays a direct role in the autophagic turnover of plastid constituents. ..

    ..Consistent with a potential role as a diffusion barrier, we find that the ESCRT-III protein SNF7 remains associated with ILVs and is delivered to the vacuole for degradation. ..

    ..The presence of two types of vacuoles in senescing leaves could provide different lytic compartments for the dismantling of specific cellular components. The possible origin and functions of SAVs during leaf senescence are discussed. ..

    ..We hypothesize that the compartmentalized processing of storage proteins in the MVBs may allow for the sequential activation of processing proteases as the MVB lumen gradually acidifies. ..
