Term Detail
GO term:autophagy
GO id:GO:0006914
Alternate id: GO:0016238
Definition:The process in which cells digest parts of their own cytoplasm; allows for both recycling of macromolecular constituents under conditions of cellular stress and remodeling the intracellular structure for cell differentiation.
