Loss-of-function phenotypes often hold the key to understanding the connections and biological functions of biochemical pathways. We and others previously constructed libraries of short hairpin RNAs that allow systematic analysis of RNA interference-induced phenotypes in mammalian cells. Here we report the construction and validation of second-generation(More)
Endophilin A1 is a homodimeric membrane-binding endocytic accessory protein with a high dimerization affinity. Its function has been hypothesized to involve autoinhibition. However, the autoinhibition mechanism, as well as the physicochemical basis for the high dimerization affinity of endophilin in solution, have remained unclear. In this contribution, we(More)
