High-purity bovine brain clathrin elicited antibodies, which were separated by affinity chromatography on clathrin conjugated with CNBr-activated Sepharose 4B. Indirect immunofluorescent labeling on cultured rat fibroblasts showed the characteristic dotted fluorescence throughout the entire cytoplasm and concentrated patches of fluorescence in areas where(More)

The interaction of clathrin with cytoskeletal proteins was studied cytochemically by immunofluorescent staining and biochemically by the binding of actin to clathrin on the surfaces of polystyrene particles. Using a cytoskeletal-disrupting agent, the linear arrangement of clathrin lattices along actin fibers was altered. As a result of cell retraction, the(More)
